Crank

Underbelly of a steam locomotive seen at Het Spoorwegmuseum Malieban, Utrecht in the the Netherlands. I hope you can almost smell the machine oil and grease, looking at the chunky bits of metal. This loco was hoisted on a small section of tracks and made it easy for visitors to look at the leaf springs and transmission drive.

Wonderful photo of the detail smile
i didn't think that you had crawled under the locomotive to bring us this great picture Ayush... and i love it...
i grew up next to a rail-yard and would go to sleep at night listening to the chugs of the locomotives....petersmile
I remember that museum so well, Ayush, hiding somewhere in one of my folders from a couple of years ago. I'll never forget being able to walk under the underbelly of that beast to see what's there! Well done.

I first thought it is part of a clock. It makes a great picture.
