Many Iron-Men Album readers will have an interest in a project being carried out by a unique group of students at a New Jersey high school.

The stationary engineering class of the Bergen County Vocational Technical High School in Hackensack New Jersey, is engaged in what has come to be known as the 'engine room project'.

This ambitious project consists of the installation, restoration and regular operation of 4 steam engines in the school's boiler room.

The 4 engines, all rescued from local plants are now fully operational with cosmetic restoration now underway.

The oldest engine, #1, was built in 1896 by the Donegan & Swift Company of New York and formerly drove a lineshaft in a Maywood, N.J. factory. This engine is of the classic 'bottle frame' type with steam admission controlled by a simple slide valve.
