A photo with plenty for a UK ex steam man to reflect upon. So many different things, also some similar ones too. I would guess that the class were good steamers having that wide fire-grate and large steam space over the firebox. Get-at-able moving parts appear to be well designed and the sling to drop the piston con-rod on, if splitting the crosshead, was something that we dreamed of in depots. A very thoughtful photograph which I keep going back to.
