24th May 2009:
Jason emailed me with the following information and
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.
