Britain's premier science museum has one of the most important collections of stationary steam engines in the UK but photography is tricky as tripods are not allowed. This is a view in the main east hall and shows Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam engine with a more modern Burnley Ironworks mill engine in the background. Trevithick's engine was arguably the start of more modern high pressure engines and unlike the massive engines of Newcomen and Watt was independent of its building and to an extent 'portable'.
