Hi David,

I cannot help you with the query but I can welcome to to MRF, which I'm certain you will enjoy.

Please keep us up to date with your progress - sounds interesting.

There may be some vaguely useful stuff on this site http://www.photofilecornwall.co.uk/index.htm#mineheritage

My sister lives within sight of one of the featured engine houses. The tall 'tower' element of a modest engine house (from which the beam that drove the pump once protruded) will probably have a 30' by 30' plan and stand 60' high. There will be a long single storey building attached, which housed the boiler. Makes a sizeable building in 4mm, particularly as you also need the man engine, stamps, and sorting screens to complete a minimal mine complex. If you ever go to visit the more remote mine ruins in Cornwall, keep your eyes open for deep holes in the ground...
