Hi Gerold,

First a couple of questions

Question 1 - What is the powerhouse providing?
Steam for a steam winch for the mine shaft?
Steam for air compressors to power underground rockdrills?
Steam to make electrical power?
Steam power for mineral processing after mining eg crushers?
All 4?

That set the size of the power house boilers.

Question 2 - What type of boiler do you want?
Grounded locomotive type?
Vertical boiler?
Cornish (single flue)?
Lancashire (dual flue)?

Ken and myself should be able to round up some examples,
photos or links to each type of boiler,
and some of the stuff on the end of the boiler that sucks the steam.
