Boilerplate! Guess they watched the pressure guages carefully. No bulges anywhere. TG

But today,it will probably have more leaks in it than WikiLeaks had !!

I doubt it Mike, well not around the rivets anyway, they're hand made compressed air hammered in and would outlast most of us I reckon.....

A wonderful burst of Rust Mick, and made in the Days when things where built to be permanent.

Has a rustic, home-chewed look, none of the lines regular or matching. Nice one.

Given her age the old boiler is standing up quite well, though I have serious doubts about how she would perform under pressure.
Still, no point getting too stressed - she makes for riveting viewing as it is Smile
We met one of her relatives at Beamish recently; you might call her Great Gertie. I'll post a photo of her one day.
Love the pattern of the rivets here, Mick: a big smiling mouth but no nose!
Things them days were to last rivets and all, nice colour good framing. liked the intro info.

This isn't just rust. This is rust caught in fanTAStic light. Niiice.

And the smile in it looks like that smile in the Peugeot 407's mug! Although the latter just looks weird.

Forgot to mention's not just the feather duster which got packed. Also glasses and a bossy disposition.

Great Mick great, there's an art to it, when you see those men in the old days throwing the red hot rivetts about, have to admire them, they got the blame for the Titanic's fall but i think it was an overweight necklace Wink
