Mr Monkey at the Bristol Industrial Museum

"It doesn't look entirely safe to me, you know"

Mr Monkey was intrigued by the Grenville Steam Carriage and its shiny boiler. This was built in Glastonbury around 1880, and is just a small steam engine with three wheels and some seats attached. It needs a driver, and a fireman, and someone to do the steering, and it can take up to four passengers. It's been restored and in high gear it can do 20mph, at 8-10 gallons of water and 6-10lbs of coal to the mile.
