Four beam engines by the Leicester engineering firm of Gimson and Co. have survived in Abbey Pumping Station, Corporation Road, Leicester - where four 200 horsepower Gimson rotative Woolf compound beam pumping engines - which were installed in 1891 to dispose of Leicester's sewage - are under restoration and steamed at well announced intervals. These engines form the core of the Leicestershire Museum of Technology, along with a number of other stationary steam and other engines and interesting exhibits.
