Checking Out a Running Triple Expansion

The Building 28 gang recently made their way into East Greenwich, R.I. to explore the New England Wireless and Steam Museum, where the Herreshoff triple expansion steam engine is now being shown off.

Their museum visit was given the ultimate treat: the folks at NEWSM ran the engine for the crew!
