LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL. ARRIVAL OF THE MEGÆTHON. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 29 December 1860

LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL. ARRIVAL OF THE MEGÆTHON.   THE megaethon, or steam traction engine, the property of Messrs. Jones and Palmer by whom it was imported, left Sydney on the 20th June last with loading for Messrs. S. Emanuel and Son of Goulburn. The trip was made partly as an ordinary commercial speculation, but principally with the view of determining the adaptability of the megaethon for travelling on the roads of the colony. A quantity of the salt which formed part of the loading, was lost in Berrima River. The weight of the loading delivered, was about nine tons. The engine having at length entered our town, we have thought that a somewhat detailed description of the machinery will be acceptable to our readers. The engine is that known as Boydell's, and was made by Mr Charles Burrell, St, Nicholas Foundry, Thetford, Norfolk. In the working parts of the steam-engine alone there is nothing peculiar to dis- tinguish it from the ordinary form of portable steam- engine ...
