Manchester Liverpool Road

On display at the Museum of Science and Industry, which is located at the site of the former Manchester Liverpool Road station, is the remains of Stephenson's 0-2-2 'Rocket'. There are a few modifications that had taken place during its working life including mounting the chimney on top of a smokebox and bringing the cylinders almost into a horizontal position. How appropriate that it should be visiting the terminus at the eastern end of the line on which it once ran. Details of the display in Manchester (until September 2019) are at www.scienceandindustrymuseum.org.uk/whats-on/stephensons-rocket
