Next to the Portwey Mr Monkey found the Robin, the last intact steamcoaster in the world, which was built in Blackwall in 1890. Her hold has been converted into a centre for creative learning, and volunteers are working on repairing the engines. Lloyds apparently registered it as a three masted schooner without noticing the engines, which Mr Monkey thought was a little careless of them.
You can read about the ship at the S.S. Robin website.
