The old Western Springs pumphouse was in operation from 1877 until 1902. Designed by the engineer, William Errington, the building housed a large steam driven beam engine which pumped the springs water to supply Auckland. The interior has cast-iron columns, a panelled ceiling and a finely detailed staircase while the exterior is large arched doorways and round-headed windows. The building is one of the main features at MOTAT and is an important example of Victorian industrial architecture.
