Back outdoors at the MOSI, just outside the Power Hall the 'Planet' locomotive was steaming up ready to take passengers on a trip down the line. This impressive engine was built by the Friends of the Museum and has been providing rides for visitors since 1992. It's a modern replica of a Robert Stephenson loco used to haul trains on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1830. You can just make it out left of centre in my earlier upload Old and New.
