P1/2/3 Trip To The National Mining Museum Scotland

Yesterday P1/2/3 visited the museum to find out how electricity is produced from coal. We were shown around by an ex-miner who started working there when he was only 15! Our visit included a trip into the mine, a look around two exhibition rooms, and starting and stopping the steam engine which hauled the cages for the pit.
