    After visiting Lots Road Power Station (see previous posts), we went to the Sewage Pumping Station next door

    5 six-cylinder Bellis & Morcom diesel engines and bevel-drive gearboxes drive the pumps in the basement

    Cooling water pipes are blue and lubricating oil are brown

    And again. Note electric pumps in the distance

    You can just make out the cooling water flowing out the bent pipes into the hoppers.
