Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Yes it works but, the little door knob don't hold much steam so only runs for a short time and it gets covered in soot !
I'm going to fit a very small motor on the fly wheel to it rotates inside the bell jar. Thanks for the interest.

Very punk-y... I like it...especially like the "brass-in-glass" display.   Wink

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.
