Can you use your curious brain to help us understand how a steam locomotive works? Our Explainers have a manual, but it’s more fun to work it out!

In this dynamic show you’ll hear about the history of transport and how the steam locomotive changed the world, help figure out how a steam locomotive works and learn a dance to help you remember all the parts.


Loco-Motion is also available for educational groups. Find out more.
