Whilst staying away in Suffolk we've taken the time to visit a few museums. Today we visited the East Anglian Transport Museum. Very good and you can ride Buses, Trolley Buses, Trams and a 2' Gauge railway All on the one site. They also have a couple of full size steam rollers amongst many other interesting exhibits, and these are housed in a building with living vans etc and tell the story of steam Road making..

If you are an ardent stem toy enthusiast you can even find a small display of Mamods with a couple of interesting items amongst them, noteably a Swan and a Cyldon.

Yesterday we visited the Forncett Industrial Steam Museum just over the border in Norfolk. A fantasic plae,worthy of a return trip when they are in steam. I just snapped a quick picture of the London Bridge Engine before we left.

Looks an interesting visit Will.

The Swan is the rare pick of the bunch amongst that display.
