A Picture Is Worth 1000 Words (4)

What Is It?

The Wonder Of Windermere
Correspondent Alan paid a visit to the lakeside Cumbrian town and reported that bus timetables (printed - on paper!) were readily available ...
... and, what's more, they weren't hidden "round the back" and you didn't have to get on bended knee and beg for them! He was equally impressed that buses diverted from the main road ...
... to serve stops bang outside the train station.
Sadly, the original station is but a shadow of its former self, now filled with good and edible (and drinkable!) things as a Booths supermarket.
The former overall roof ...
... has been rebuilt and the platform area is groaning with delicious morsels to buy.
Steam trains ...
... gave way to diesel multiple units and the station became depressingly run-down.
A new station was built a little further back along the line ...
... from which the shape of the old can be seen at the end of the new platform.

It's A Stick
It is, indeed, a computer memory stick sold by the clever people at the Festiniog Railway. It is modelled (loosely) on a Fairlie loco ...
... which is, effectively, two separate steam locos glued together on one chassis.

And Where And What Is This?
More tomorrow!

    Aha! I know where that is ... and I think you've cleverly obliterated the writing which would give us a clue! It looks very different today, I think!
