    Again there appears to be little obvious information to go on. However, two engines - does that help ?
    So what is the train, when is it running and at what location ?

    The three leading vehicles are 21ft 0in horseboxes. Remainder of train looks like 30ft 1in stock. Engines are an Experiment (with handrail/blower control rod above the ejector pipe) and a Jumbo. Location – who can tell?

    Wild guess – the featureless countryside and deep drainage ditches may be at Moreton’s crossing (north of Crewe) before the line was widened. Is that the outline of a signal cabin on the left and what appears to be a boarded foot crossing?
