I find it amazing that this mess of
con-rods doesn't immediately lock up
the second the brakes are off. There are
some things I'll never understand, like
why does a dropped piece of bread and
jam always land jam side down? And
why do you always meet the biggest
truck on the road on one of the tightest
bends, and why, when you spill a cup of
tea, does one of your favourite books always get ruined? Likewise these wheels: I
could (finally) understand the steam generation process that goes on inside the
engine, but how does steam pressure make the drive wheels go round when there are
half a dozen steel bars bolted to them? To be honest, I'd rather not find out - the
mystery would be gone, and with it, possibly, my interest in the pictorial qualities of
old locomotives, especially these sorts of detail shots.
