Krasnoyarsk bicycle traveler Vladimir Chernikov and his colleague in the Russian Geographical Society Dmitry Semenov discovered an old English steam machine in the Siberian taiga.

This unusual rarity is almost the only material evidence of the “gold rush” in the Yenisei province of the mid-19th century.

“I sent photos of the steam engine found by us to my colleagues from the Royal Geographical Society of Great Britain who helps us in clarifying circumstances of the appearance of this steam machine at the Kuzeevsky gold mines ” – said Vladimir Vasilyevich.

Richard Garrett & Sons were founded in 1778 in England. They produced agricultural machinery, steam engines, and trolley buses.
