Sketch of the Carriages on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 4th November 2011 by Liam Physick

One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. This sketch, based on the earlier painting by Thomas Talbot Bury, was drawn by Henry Auden in March 1832, and shows typical examples of the rolling stock on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The top half, concerned with passenger services, shows the Planet pulling one second-class coach, two first-class coaches, one mail coach and one truck containing a horse-drawn carriage. The bottom half is concerned with coaches: an unnnamed locomotive pulls a large slab of stone, and some cows, sheep and pigs
