The mystical dongle-wanglifier- # 08/13

Marvel at the exquisitely made control system for the mighty steam engine: the perfection of form and function.


  1. Incredible this series of photos, and the engine as such of course! I imagine that there was quite a staff to take care. Do you have any idea of the size and the power compared to the engines of the cross-atlantic steamers?

  2. I've enjoyed this series a lot. The 'industrial art' appeals to me -- those iron columns, for example: wow!
    I also likes the giant trees.

    A belated happy anniversary greeting on the blog!

  3. I don't pretend to remotely understand it but it's obviously a work of art. Love the colours, patina, beautiful. Nice photo too!
