Isombard Kingdom Brunel (a tribute)

Just taking a short break from railway modelling here for a day to post this tribute to probably the world's most talented engineer Isombard Kingdom Brunel.

He would have been 207 years old today!

Happy 207th Birthday Isambard!

  1. Can't argue with this...IKB has been a hero ever since I read the LTC Rolt biography as a 14 year old. He was an inspiration in so many ways and, as with the other colossi of the age, Stephenson and Telford, he was a man of many parts, not all of them perfect, but then who wants that? I hope we will always honour Brunel and his engineering legacy, even if we don't make anything any more in this country!
