Weight and Stuff Report – 28 June 2013

Back up today, mutter.

No walkies or photography today, as I had an out of office meeting for much of the day. So here are some more photographs from my recent visit to the National Railway Museum in York.

One of the largest engines on display is a big black steam engine formerly used on Chinese railways. I decided to get a look at its wheels:

The NRM has two replicas of Stephenson’s Rocket. There’s the operational one that I’ve seen in use, and this now quite old one that was made with cut-away sections to show how it works. But I’m not showing you that, I”m showing you its chimney. Because it’s a slightly different view:
