  1. Definitely Great Northern Railway, later LNER See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bennerley_Viaduct
  2. The kettles were interesting too. Here's one on eBay (linked image)
  3. Sentinels D11 and D12 are in various photos, so at least 2 were in use at some time or other
  4. There were at least 3 BR standard shunters - Robin, Simon and David according to pictures online.
  5. Here we go... I think they had one or two ex-BR shunters too. Not sure of the details
  6. They had a 4-axle Sentinel diesel shunter with a centre cab will try and find a photo later.
  7. The white rings on the tree and white edges to the front mudguards on the lorry suggest wartime.
  8. Some motors seen recently in Armenia and Georgia - a couple of lorries and British buses included too, for completeness
  9. It is not the first time that strange car has been discussed. There was definitely a very long and interesting topic in the photo some time ago on here. The result was inconclusive despite several near misses. Probably a kit car or home made job was the final conclusion, IIRC
  10. Collars Ltd of Wembley owned AUU 602, a Commer two-ton chassis with an "art deco" streamlined van body by Holland Coachcraft of Govan in Glasgow. This van was displayed at the 1933 Commercial Vehicle Show
  11. The Old Market Square was called Market Place on maps up until the 1930s at least. Old Market Square probably just means - square where the old market was held.
  12. Strictly speaking, this is before Hucknall had a market place. The photographer is looking towards Church Square with the church in the background. What is now the market place was occupied by buildings and private gardens.
  13. Archway House was originally 2 cottages on the ground floor and a schoolroom on the upper floor. It was proposed to build identical gatehouses all around the periphery of the Duke's estate , but ultimately only one was built.
  14. I have been to Mexico twice, but not for many years. Most buses in rural areas seemed to be ex-US school buses at the time. I got on a bus one evening with friends. We worried, as he took our fares, that the driver seemed very young - maybe early teens at the most. We sat down and noticed that locals getting on the bus didn't seem even slightly perturbed. Eventually it came to departure time. The lad got out of the driver's seat and the real driver, a mature man, got on the bus and took his place. Phew!
