Getting around in days gone by was a little slower than it is today. Before there were cars, the horse and cart was a common mode of transport.
Get the feel of what it would've been like to get around in the early 1900's - sit on our life-size horse, pull the levers and work the jigger and sit in our 1907 vintage Rover Car.
Workers on railway lines used a jigger to move around. A jigger was lifted onto the rails then workers pulled levers to move it along the lines. Once they got to the location they needed to repair they would lift it off the tracks. Health and safety was a little different then too. Workers knew when the trains were scheduled to come and would move out of the way.
