Yesterday we visited the Great Western Museum, STEAM, in Swindon. I suspect that hardcore railfans would much prefer the Didcot Railway Centre as it has a lot more rolling stock, but it is only open at weekends. STEAM has a lot of interesting history that is very well packaged. Also, just visiting it gives you a great impression of how huge Swindon Works, the GWR locomotive factory, was. The museum is big. The site also includes a large outlet mall and lots of apartments and offices. There are still large parts of it unused.
Today we are planning to go to Bath to take the waters, as one does. It should be good for our tired legs.
