A bit slow in getting the report up for this. Visited on the above date after slaving away in the baking sun with themodder.

Not much to see really but the historical relevance is quite good. This place is where the Stourbridge Lion was made.

The Stourbridge Lion
Much has been written about this locomotive, largely because of its claim to fame - that it was the first steam locomotive to run on a commercial line in the United States. Built by Foster, Rastrick & Co. in 1829, the Stourbridge Lion's historic first run took place on August 8th of that year. It is now on view at the B&O Railroad Museum, Baltimore MD, on loan from The Smithsoniam Institute, Washington DC.
