The engine has now been loaned to the Apedale Hertiage Centre, Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme where it can seen in operation on special occasions.
The engine was used to change the conveyor belts in the main production drift. This recording also shows the huge winders for the two shafts at Hem Heath.
No.1 (upcast) shaft was 1020m deep and had a Koepe winder at the top of a large tower and a methane extraction plant.
No.2 (downcast) shaft had the much-admired A-frame head gear which was a local landmark for many years. Four cages were wound in the 1039m deep shaft by two separate winders, a Koepe winder on the West side of the headframe by the compressor house and a drum winder on the East side.
