This is the engine compartment of the historic PD-DRESDEN. A German built steam powered paddle boat from 1926. Amazingly it had been in service till its modernization in 1993, when the twin piston 300hp steam plant was converted from coal /steam to gas/steam .

    Wonderful work! So this is the original 1926 engine, which is still in use, but now using gas instead of the original coal to generate steam?

  • Yes Carl. Cleaner and more efficient.But still using the original engine. Only the boilers where changed.. It was a great ride..As we where traveling upstream , you could literally feel the individual piston strokes against the strong Elbe current trying to turn those huge paddle wheels.
