A wonderfully evocative picture of a Robinson GCR B8 4-6-0 with both four and six wheeled stock plus a nice selection of private owner wagons in the foreground but the location had been a mystery dating back some four years until Kevin Chamberlain sent me the following text:
"I've just seen that photo in a railway book in a local library. The caption in the book says the location is Bulwell Common, with the train travelling south towards Nottingham. That would fit, as the road in the background could well be St Albans Road, Bulwell."
Further confirmation has been submitted by Vic Smith: "The train has just left Bulwell Common Station. The large house at the corner of Broomhill Road/St. Albans road is extant and visible in this image."
