Locomotive maker's plate
Locomotive maker's plate
My attempts to photograph the makers plate on SJ8397 : Saddle tank locomotive were frustrated by steam from the cylinder drain cocks blowing past. But I decided that was probably no bad thing, so I have uploaded one of the partially obscured examples rather than one in the clear.
The Science and Industry Museum, Manchester

The Science and Industry Museum in Manchester is a large museum devoted to the development of science, technology and industry. It places particular emphasis on Manchester’s achievements and contributions in these fields.

The museum was originally called the North Western Museum of Science and Industry when it opened on Grosvenor Street in 1969 (SJ8497 : The North Western Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester). Having outgrown its former site, it was moved to its present location in Castlefield, where it opened on 15 September 1983. It later became known as The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) until its name was changed to the Science and Industry Museum in September 2018 to reflect it becoming part of the Science Museum Group.

The museum is housed in five listed buildings on the historic site of Liverpool Road Station which was vacated by British Rail in 1975. This station is the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station; one of the original termini of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, the world's first passenger railway.

The museum houses extensive displays on the themes of transport (railway locomotives and rolling stock, aircraft, and space vehicles), power (water, electricity, steam and gas engines), Manchester's sewerage and sanitation, textiles, communications and computing. There is currently no charge for entry to the museum.
