Fascinating!
I'm glad you left it in colour - a monochrome version would be "Fifty Shades of Earl Grey"!

Thanks Gareth, I almost did a mono version, but felt that it needed to be in colour. I liked the way the whole arrangement looked like it was just used to make tea...

For the trainspotters amongst you it's 0-6-0T 32 Gothenburg, built in 1903 by Hudswell Clarke for the Manchester Ship Canal Railway

The damper as you well know is a mechanical way  of depressing something ... ...   :lol:

 Now I'm really fed up !!:37_disappointed:

Thanks Clicker, I just loved the way all the pipes and guages, levers and glass chambers lead to those two pots for making tea.... I have to say 580 gallons is a lot of tea, not even I drink that much tea in one day....

Damp can also mean slightly wet, so damper could mean even more wetter than just damp. I imagine if the dampener was all the way up the tea would come out as something like a vaping mist... or tea mist....

Ignore me I have weird ideas......

Nicely seen and taken. I imagine that damper water is needed is to compensate for any drying out of the water caused by dunking biscuits.

Really well seen, Rye - it made me chuckle.

I think that apart from the fact that it's humorous, it makes for a strong image as well.
