I've been passing this place for years and often would see some chap dressed in a blue boiler suit bent over some part of the train, tinkering away. The passing thought being 'those chaps must have the best job in Scarborough', oily rag, oil stained overalls and a passion for old machines.
The engine is Triton, made in 1932, loved the hsadows cast on the white weather board of the engine shed.
Men and sheds.
