Mystery Photographs - Selection 3 Refreshed May 2020

 

Picture 3-1  Jim Scott suggests South Ruislip but is puzzled by the lack of any buildings or canopy on what would be the underground side of the fence.

Picture 3-2  A “Dub-Dee” on iron ore hoppers – enough here to identify the location?

Picture 3-3  Thank you Richard Walker for identifying Datchet.  If we could make out the headboard, we could identify the special and hence the date.

Picture 3-4  A North Eastern Railway coaling stage – does anyone know it?

 

  Picture 3-4

 

Picture 3-5  A distinctive piece of architecture perhaps?

Picture 3-6  We suspect this might be in the Lichfield area.

Picture 3-7  It’s ex-GWR and it’s on a canal.  That must narrow it down a bit!

Picture 3-8  This might be Fleetwood shed, but confirmation would be nice:

Picture 3-9  Niall Fergusson (HMRS Caledonian Railway Steward) confirms Bevan Price’s thought that this is a Caledonian 782 class 0-6-0T fitted with a stovepipe chimney.  Mike Morant suggests Kingmoor, Carlisle, as several were located there, and Niall mentions that some 439 class 0-4-4Ts went to the Chesterfield area in the 1950s, and this could be true of the 782 class locos.  (It looks like a Markham Colliery PO wagon in the background.)
