    Describes and illustrates two new locomotive designs: one, shaped like its name, 'the Tortoise', is designed for the 'luggage and parliamentary trains' and to keep the poor on the road 'as many hours as possible'; the other locomotive, 'the Clown', is capable of 'skipping and leaping, which is found to exist, without the slightest cause, on various railways'.
