Mystery Number 16
– supplied by anonymous
This is a phtograph from the Society collection.
But there seems to be an element of uncertainty about exactly
what it is, and what it did.

|This is American Special kitchen car No.315 as shown in the carriage exhibition feature.|
Where it was taken I don't know. The scenery hints at somewhat wilder countryside than is encountered twixt Euston and Liverpool.

|Quite right. The doubt arose because I mixed up the image dimensions and stretched the image, making it look a lot longer than it really was. (I've fixed the image in the exhibition). But any thoughts where this was taken?|

|The photo was taken at Wolverton, south of the Works on the west side, looking west. Several were taken here; see D Jenkinson's 'LNWR Carriages' plate 35 page 18, plate 147 on page 121 - also in Ted Talbot's 'LNWR Miscellany (1)' plate 52. The individual bushes in the background can be recognised!|
