It is our intention to create a Hydro Museum in the Turbine Hall at Duck Reach. We have access to some of the original generating equipment which is in excellent condition.
- A 1904 Kolben generating set. This set was built in Prague and is stored at the QVMAG.
- A 48inch Knights gate valve. On loan to Waddamana Museum.
- A Gilkes 21hp turbine with a Murrays governer. On loan to Waddamana Museum.
To highlight the Flying Fox we intend to suspend the Cradle from a gantry and connect cable to the Winch House. This will demonstrate how the system operated.
We may even create access to the Winch House and have a sensory sound of the working machinery.
