I uploaded four videos dealing with the steam powered hoisting engines used at a slate quarry. One video shows an engine being winched through its engine house in order to be loaded on to a trailer. Two videos show another hoist operating under steam. The final video shows a retired engineer briefly describing his experiences around the engines.
