The Ekotechnicke Museum in Prague. I visited this museum, housed in a former sewage treatment plant, during August 2004. The magnificent buildings contain a pair of large pumping engines. The underground brick chambers are cathedral-like in their construction. At the time of our visit the Skoda steam roller was under restoration in the workshop and the remains of a Fowler ploughing engine and a Clayton & Shuttleworth portable could be seen in the grounds.

Essex Steam
Essex Steam is a collaboration between John Giles and John Murphy. John Giles currently owns 3 rollers (2 steam and one diesel) along with a living van. John Murphy has been interested in steam for a lifetime, and remembers the days when steam rollers where in use to mend the roads in Maldon. As a boy he lived opposite the Council yard, where the rollers were stored and operated.
