Engine Room

By mistere
The drivers cab of one of the steam locomotives in the NRM in York.
The earliest locomotives, such as Stephenson's Rocket, had no cab; the locomotive controls and a footplate for the crew were simply left open to the elements. However, to protect the crews against adverse weather conditions, locomotives gradually came to be equipped with a roof and protective walls, and the expression "cab" refers to the cabin created by such an arrangement.
Many thanks for your C&C's on yesterdays Archie 2 image.
Special thanks to Peter(ddolfelin) for his UA.
