For this special edition of Studies in Design Education Craft and Technology, devoted to the theme of Education in HistOlY of Technology, we have a broad range of contributions from a variety of practitioners in the field. The industrial working museum is a recent phenomenon: few of those who made and saw the film - now a classic - The Titfield Thunderbolt in 1952 ever thought it would become a reality so soon; a branch-line saved by the local community and operated with historic stock and equipment. Yet such working conservation is now operating on a nationwide scale: Ironbridge will soon be the only place making traditional wrought iron; Manchester has the last working self-acting spinning mule, Stafford the last steam-powered waterworks, Brighton its Victorian pumping-station and training wokshop on restoration engineering.
