Black Country Living Museum: In 1712 Thomas Newcomen built the first successful steam engine in the world which was used for pumping water from coal mines on Lord Dudley's estates.  In 1986, after more than ten years of painstaking research, the Museum completed the construction of a full scale working replica of that 1712 engine.

Black Country Living Museum is an award winning open air living museum that tells the story of the world's first industrial landscape with buildings, vehicles, objects and costumed characters for you to interact with and explore.

PROMPTED by the photograph of my friend David Allen and his son Bert's Burrell 'Old Tim' on the front of the Bugle a couple of weeks ago, I wondered if readers might also be interested in my Foden steam traction engine 'Earl of Dudley'.

A view worth waiting for: Deep violets and pinks overtake the sky at Olympic National Park in Washington. Of this moment, photographer Grant Longenbaugh says, “The sea stacks were beautifully accentuated by the moist air, and while the actual sunset was quick and relatively colorless, about 30 minutes after, the sky lit up.” Soak in the scenery of the park’s more than 70 miles of wild coastline by hiking, backpacking, exploring tidepools and more.
