This was our second visit to a wonderful museum with a marvellous collection of over 250 engines be it gas, diesel, oil, petrol or steam (one of the largest collections in Europe) many of which are in working order.With knowledgeable experts on hand to explain the backgrounds and workings the time spent there went all too quickly. In addition to the various engines there is also lots of engineering history together with a huge topographical model of the area c1900 showing the site of the collieries and railways at the time. There is also a Craft Centre where monthly demonstrations are given by wood turners and blacksmiths,The two and a half hours that we as a mixed group of 24 males and females spent there was not long enough-we will return!
We are fortunate that it is less than 30 minutes from home so it is on the list of things to do -again.
