Oooo, Colleda has different info! We visited soon after it opened when it was powered by hamsters. I wonder if gerbils supply more paw power or are easier to train....?

The day we visited was one of those lovely days in a long spell of wet ones. The view from the top was wonderful and the exhibition was informative. Well worth a visit.

Anyway, the next question....   

In 2000, the Butterley Company manufactured and erected the Falkirk Wheel.

The same company completed the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth in 2005 and the large arched bridge over the railway lines near the entrance to London's 2012 Olympic Park in 2009.

In 1867 / 8, they were also responsible for the 7000 tons of wrought and cast iron which formed the largest single spanned roof in the world at that time. This roof is still visible today at which railway station?

Thanks for the ding and apologies for the late reply.

Next question:

Only one London station on the Monopoly board wasn't mentioned in the previous question, either in my answer or in speakers-corner's reply. Name it.

(point of information, s-c, hasn't that got a tube connection as well?)

Yes it has, but it is not considered a major mainline station.

This train is ready to leave. Please mind the closing doors. Beep beep beep ....... DING!

Apparently both Edgware Road and Hammersmith have two stations which are on different lines but have the same name. Sometimes these are counted as one, sometimes as two. Therefore the score is either 268 names or 270 stations.

Over to colleda!

Sorry, but I would have to Google the rest of the answer, so Im out of this one.

To keep things moving you can have the Ding S-C as the question was what is a monotreme and it is an egg laying mammal. And you answered that. There are only two monotremes in the world. the platypus and the Echidna (Spiny Anteater). They are found in Australia and New Guinea.

They are unusual in that 1. they are mammals that lays eggs and, 2. they suckle their young unlike other egglaying creatures such as birds, reptiles etc.
