    I usually don't take pictures of frogs, but I found this one while hiking at a nature preserve near the Tunnel of Trees in Harbor Springs, Michigan.

    The boiler pressure is rated at 120psi but I notice that the gauge has the red line at 105psi. I assume the other two gauges are the high & low pressure cylinder pressure gauges.

    If I remember correctly the high pressure cylinder is on the right and the low pressure in the middle with the large bore grey pipe exhausting the steam to the condenser on the far left.

    Deep down in the engine room we got a tour given by this chap whose name I didn't catch.

    VIC32 has a compound steam engine developing 120 horse power. The High Pressure cylinder has a piston valve and the Low Pressure cylinder a slide or matchbox valve. The main engine exhausts into a condenser (the large chamber on the right if I remember correctly), thus the used steam is pumped back into the boiler as hot water in a circulating system. So the Clyde Puffer doesn’t actually puff!

    VIC32, one of the last two seagoing coal-fired steam Clyde Puffers was in Corpach dock the previous day & we learnt that it would be sailing down Loch Eil the following morning. This was a shot from the train.

    The Clyde puffer is a type of small coal-fired and single-masted cargo ship built mainly on the Forth and Clyde canal. However VIC32 was actually built in my home town of Thorne in South Yorkshire at Richard Dunstan's shipyard in 1943. VIC stands for "Victualing Inshore Craft"

    On our way to the Moorings at Banavie for dinner we detoured to Corpach docks to look around VIC 32 the steam coal-fired Clyde Puffer which was now tied up at the entrance to the Caledonian Canal.

    VIC stands for "Victualing Inshore Craft". The vessel is 66′ 4″ long. 18′ beam. 8′ 6″ draft at the stern and 4′ at the bow. She weighs approximately 160 tons displacement dead-weight and is registered at 49 43/100 tons (Thames Builders measurement.) Her derrick can lift 1 ton. She was fitted in 1943 with a Cochran vertical water tank boiler (replaced in 2006). This has 5 water tubes and 1 furnace door on the starboard side. There is a 7 ton coal bunker on the starboard side and a 5 ton one on the port side.

    In 2002, Nick and Rachel who purchased VIC32 in 1975 and restored her, gave the vessel to the Puffer Preservation Trust, a new company with charitable status who continue to run the ship.

    The boiler water gauge and polished brass check valves with a gauge lamp on the left. The original 1943 Cochran vertical water tank boiler was replaced in 2006. This has 5 water tubes and 1 furnace door on the starboard side.

    Proof that VIC32, one of the last two seagoing coal-fired steam Clyde Puffers, was built in my home town of Thorne in South Yorkshire at Richard Dunstan's shipyard in 1943. VIC stands for "Victualing Inshore Craft" and the boat was built in England because when the Admiralty placed an order in 1939 for 50 steamships the Clydeside yards were too busy.

    The original boiler was built by Cochran & Co of Annan but was replaced by a new boiler in 2006.

    Richard Dunstan's shipyard opened in Thorne in 1858 and while early records are sketchy over 1300 vessels were built there after 1932. All were launched sideways into the Stainforth & Keadby canal. Locks at Keadby on the River Trent restricted the size of vessels that could be built in Thorne. When I was in primary school the whole class had a day out to watch the launch of an ocean-going tug.

    Sold to an American company in 1974 Dunstan's, a major employer in Thorne, was closed in 1985 and today houses cover the site.

The one train an hour which departs Thorne South for Doncaster departed the station at the same time as 6E53 approached, so was forced into the telephoto shot!
