Mystery Number 202
– supplied by Ted Talbot
The engine is an ‘Alfred the Great’ class four-cylinder compound. It has a capuchon on the chimney but has not yet been converted to a ‘Benbow’.
So the date is probably 1904-5.
But where is it ?

|The signals and signal cabin are LYR, so I would guess somewhere in the Fylde.|

|I believe the location to be Todderstaffe signal cabin just south of Poulton-le-Fylde on the LNWR & LYR Joint Line.|

|This looks like Todderstaffe signal cabin on the Preston & Wyre joint line (LNWR and L&YR), just south of Poulton. Looking north - the junction signals would be for Blackpool (Talbot Road) to the left and Fleetwood to the right. I'd guess the photographer might be J. M. Tomlinson; he lived at Poulton-le-Fylde and took a lot of railway photographs thereabouts.|

|Note that the primary route - if this is Todderstaffe – is to Blackpool, not to Fleetwood. The signals are positioned to the right of the tracks owing to the curve. Is that a platelayers’ hut on top of the embankment.|
