Steam at Blists Hill

 

The road roller, Billy, manufactured by Wallis and Steevens in 1903 trundles alongside the canal that runs through the Blist Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge. In the background is the replica of Richard Trevithick's steam engine that first ran in ironworks at Penydarren in South Wales in 1804.

I love it that there is the 'speed movement' on the big wheels. A fine machine, there where so many of them. Pure delight to see them running.
Les Auld: They are just splendid machines and so photogenic Astrid. Thanks for the comment.
