200 year old engine

How old is the engine in your car? Just when you might have thought the engine was quite old, you find an engine that's 200 years old in the Science Museum! OK, it's not the raciest engine ever, but it is two hundred years old. These machines must have seemed like a miracle at the time, as they could do the work of several horses and didn't get tired out.
