Liverpool Road Station, Manchester
An artists painting of what the Liverpool Road Station, Manchester looked like in 1835 give or take a few years. The interesting aspect is the multiple wagon turntables that allowed shunting cars about the yard in a very compacted area. Most of the early locomotives appear to be of the "Planet" style which is a 2-2-0 with internal connecting rods and valve rods. The passenger locomotive is a Stephenson Rocket type with external connection rods.

    Roger Broederdorf Graham, I am constantly in search of 1830 to 1850 drawings, etchings, and photos. Do not remember exactly where this lithograph came from. I usually just download and continue my search.
