Default Commissioning of our Steam Engine

After more than 30 years of standstill, we were able to put back in April 2013 the listed steam engine of the mustard and vinegar factory Leman in Eystrup again. The video shows the process of commissioning from preheating to operation. The steam engine can be visited.

Default Re: Commissioning of our Steam Engine

This is an old post, but it got me wondering. Can anyone answer a few questions I've had on this engine?

The high pressure cylinder has four poppet valves, which means it's a counterflow cylinder. The low pressure cylinder appears to have two poppet valves on top(maybe two more below?), but no linkage. What's going on with this one? Is the LP cylinder even functional?

At one point, three gauges are shown during the startup process. I assume these are LP cylinder intake pressure, HP cylinder intake pressure, and condenser pressure respectively. Why is only the LP gauge showing any pressure? Are they starting the engine on the LP cylinder only for some reason?

Regardless, it's a beautiful engine!
