6024 Slipping at Leigh Bridge.


6024 ‘King Edward Ist’ continues the run from Minehead to London. Here she’s seen climbing up past Leigh Bridge. 18/11/06. Please excuse that my main tripod was out of use, so I was balancing the camera on a fencepost. The lighting conditions also made the focus a bit off.

Do steam trains still cross Sydney Harbour Bridge on tours or charters?

I see Heritage Express runs tours north, but via Strathfield instead of over the Bridge…
Thinking of taking one on a private charter, and it’d be nice for my guests who are both rail and bridge enthusiasts.

Any idea??

Built in the 19th century to supply London with water, the Museum is recognised as the most important historic site of the water supply industry in Britain. It has both the Cornish engines, which are in their original engine houses, and the rotative engines, which have been collected by the museum trust from pumping stations across the country. The collection demonstrates the major developments in steam engine technology. They also have examples of diesel, electric, water and animal powered pumping engines.

One weekend a month the 90inch, Boulton & Watt or Maudslay and Bull engines is in steam demonstrating the full power of Waterworks Beam Engines.

Also at the Museum you can see how London’s water supply has evolved from Roman times to the present day and ride on London’s only steam railway featuring the museum’s resident Wren class steam locomotive “Thomas Wicksteed” and Lister diesel locomotive “Alister”.

There are variety of special events held at the museum throughout the year, including a Steam Model Show, a Historic Fire Engines Rally, a weekend showing how the Waterworks operated during the war and performances of Henry V by The Merely Players.

Kew Bridge Steam Museum, which is operated by an independent educational charity is located just on the north side of Kew Bridge, under the tall Victorian Stand Pipe Tower (the address is Green Dragon Lane, TW18 0EN).

It is open every Tuesday to Sunday from 11am-5pm and on Bank Holiday Mondays. The steam railway is open every Sunday and on Bank Holiday Mondays from April to October. 

Prices are for a Yearly multi-visit ticket for 2010 which entitles the bearer to return as many times as desired throughout the year.

Adults – £9.50

OAP’s and Students – £8.50

Children under the age of 16 are admitted to the museum for FREE,

Muhammad, when a Bedouin wanted to kill Him

Jabir said: We slept for a while when the Prophet Muhammad suddenly called us, and we went to him, to find a Bedouin sitting with him. Muhammad said, “This Bedouin took my sword out of its sheath while I was asleep. When I woke up, the naked sword was in his hand and he said to me, ‘Who can save you from me, I replied, ‘Allah.’ Now here he is sitting.” The Prophet Muhammad did not punish him for that!
