Internal Fire Museum of Power

Internal Fire Museum of Power - GB2MOP


The Internal Fire Museum of Power had opened up their doors at 7:30pm on the 8th of June to the Aberystwyth and District Amateur Radio Society …I was one of the 16 members that attended turned out to be a very enjoyable evening.

Many of the engines were operational although the highlight of the evening for me was seeing their new exhibition of commercial radio equipment that were installed in ships and to see John Lawrence’s collection of valves that had been donated to the museum and located in the Radio Exhibition.
