Mr Monkey visits Steam

"Those cabinets are full of handwritten files, you know"

Mr Monkey following a sign directing him to visit Steam Mr Monkey in a replica GWR office

Mr Monkey noticed a locomotive stuck onto a wall, and quickly realised which way to go to get to the Steam museum. He quickly went into the museum, which is inside what used to be wheelshop. The first part of the museum recreates various parts of the locomotive works, starting with the offices. There were around 12,000 people in the Works, and they needed hundreds of clerks to organise them.

You can read about the museum at the Steam Museum website; the links to find out more about the museum are in the right hand column, because it's really the Swindon Council website in disguise.

Leave the museum and go to the previous Swindon picture - Next picture
