24th May 2009:

Jason emailed me with the following information and photographs.

I have just returned from an amazing trip to India where I came across something that might be of interest to you? While in the town of Mettupalayan in the region of Tamil Nadu I came across a very old Marshalls engine that hadn't moved in many years and had a tree embedded in the front it. It was fascinating to see, so I took some pictures - The reason I know of Marshalls is I'm originally from Lincolnshire and i remember my father talking to me about the yard before it was turned into a shopping centre.
