The Pumphouse Steam Museum - Located in Kingston, Ontario,
a restored, turn-of-the-century waterworks
somewhat like McNeill that has
been a museum open to the public since 1973. At
one time it was the only place in North America
that presented a steam waterworks to the public,
but in 1985 the museum was joined by another one
in Hamilton, Canada. McNeill
has more equipment in better condition than these
folks had to work with.
Papplewick Pumping Station - This is
a restored water plant in Great Britain. It is
beautiful and shows what McNeill could be like if
we are good stewards. They run their engines on
live steam periodically.
Kew Bridge Steam Museum - An extremely well done site
featuring a large museum in Brentford, Middlesex
County, England. They run many of their
engines on live steam every weekend.
