Heritage Boiler Services

McEwen Boilermakers have operated within the heritage field of steam boiler repairs since the company was established in 1968. We have worked with a number of the leading Heritage Railway Organisations, Industrial Museums and associated trusts across the country, carrying out both on-site repairs, or full re-builds at our Farling Top Boilerworks.

We have also worked for numerous private customers completely re-building Traction Engine, Locomotive, Steam Roller, Steam Tractor and Steam Boat Boilers. Our range of traditional boilermaking skills enable us to carry out extremely skilled hot-flanging and presswork, and often mean that we manufacture new components on-site, such as:

  • Backheads
  • Throatplates
  • Smokebox Tubeplates
  • Boiler Barrels
  • Fireboxes

Our engineers still carry out traditional hot riveting, caulking, beading etc, with all necessary welding work carried out by coded welders. We have a good working relationship with many of the top insurance organisations, who recognise that our re-build and repair projects are carried out to the highest possible standards.
