One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. This is one of the Bury prints. It shows typical examples of the rolling stock on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The top third of the print shows a typical early locomotive and a coach used to convey Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, wife of King William IV. In the middle third, we see the coach that carried the Duke of Wellington on the Railway’s opening day, along with a bizarre coach, looking something like a cross between a pram and a tent. In the bottom third, we see a Chinese coach, and trucks used to for an unspecified purpose
