The Cornish Engine House

A nation that runs on steam needs a steam engine, it would seem. Fortunately, one exists in the Moors, and it is available for viewing.

The property conveniently lies on a railway in the section of the Moors nearest to Victoria City.

The great engine works tirelessly to supply Caledon with her power needs.

The photograph below shows the sheer size of the beast, with its voracious appetite for coal.

Fortunately, a supply of coal lies close at hand, though one assumes the rail line could be employed to bring additional coal to the engine as needed.

And look at the flora growing nearby - the entire operation creates no adverse effects on the environment! Coal: clean, efficient power for the 19th century - and beyond.
