Steampunk Hands Around the World 2015

Once again it's time for Steampunk Hands Around the World. A wonderful event of inclusion and camaraderie, reinforcing the togetherness of steampunk. This year's theme is "Our Playground, Our Classroom, Our Workshop". I like it, how could I not, Professors exist in classrooms and workshops, and all of this is playtime. Typing of which, my family joined my son's best friend's family at the Ipswich Rail Museum today. Ostensibly we were there due to the end of school holidays Thomas the Tank Engine themed exhibits (that are quite spiffing), I enjoyed walking through the rail museum's historical archives of Brisbane and Queensland Steam during the late 1800s through to now. For your education, to inspire some builds, and for the fun of it, here are a collection of images to hopefully spark some entertainment for you.
