I'm stupid busy with other work this week so blogging will be light I'm afraid. In fact, all I've done is haul out a box of old photos to scan for your entertainment.
Anyway, excuses over, here's photo number one - an 0-4-0 + 0-4-0 diesel shunter in Esso livery.
The second is a fireless loco.
Both came from the section of the drawer marked "Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway". Assuming this is correct, and since there are some Carneforth it might not be, then I'd guess that these are the sort of engines acquired when a preserved railway is new and will take anything.
Time-wise, the photos date from the 1980s and that's as much as I know. Would anyone care to comment to add a bit more information?
