I called into our Railway Museum a couple of weeks back and took some photos. I thought they may be of interest.

This is the very first locomotive to pull a passenger train. Locomotion No 1. The wood work has been replaced, but most is original and it was actually run in the 150th Anniversary Cavalcade.

Also of interest are some 3D printed models of locos. They were very fine and well detailed.

Nice collection of photos. Looks to be a very nice museum. Which suspension bridge is modelled in the case? It's very good.

Sorry for the 11 month delay, but that's the Tsing Ma Suspension Bridge in Hong Kong, largely made at Cleveland Bridge and Engineering, a short distance away from where the photo was taken. It is a very good museum, even if steam trains aren't really your thing.
