Over 4 days since anyone has had a stab at this. My first thought was also Swyre Head, but as it isn't, I now think it is probably on the east coast, and that we might be on the North York Moors again.

If that is correct, I would hazard a guess at it is taken from the lane just south of Brotton, looking east towards Loftus, with the very distinct cliff being that above Hummersea Scar, just east of Skinningrove.

No, it shall slumber underground a while (not a hundred years) and shall re-emerge like Rubezahl, maybe when the second wave lockdown is announced :?

That's one of the Bagnall fireless locomotives used by Huntley and Palmers.

Not only, dunno if the flour was ground at H+P Reading
The LSO, locomotive-shaped object was filled with steam from a stationary boiler and could shunt around for a few hours
Also used in paper works, refineries etc

"The advantage of these locomotives was their ability to operate within the various despatch warehouses without either fire risk or fumes."

That is why apprentices were sent down to the boiler house for a bucket of steam. :lol:
At the last count:- Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D
