Old vid from a steamship engine room


   Testing this interface out, see if it works. This is a quick vid I took years ago of the engine room in the 40,000 ton steam tanker NEW RIVER,  just the operating deck in the engine casing, nothing of the boiler casing or bilge decks.

So right at the end of the clip there are two silver wheels - what are they for? Some type of valve closure?
