Curator of Transport and Technology John Messner takes you on an evocative trip on the steam railway, visiting Stirling Station in the late 1880s.  Glasgow Boy William Kennedy's painting ‘Stirling Station’ shows the hustle and bustle of Victorian travel - passengers arriving, trains departing and all the activity of a busy city station.
