    only just recalled this but the other night I saw a TV ad (might have been Lloyds bank) set in an industrial setting and in the background it looked like three or four loco boilers probably in factory use. Anyone else see that? I only glimpsed it and been hoping it would pop up again.

    While on the subject of Ads, Is it just me or does 45407's whistle sound rather LNERish in that Highland Spring one.

    It's the derelict Chatterly Whitfield colliery site, once a museum many years ago. Those boilers look to have been converted to either water or air storage. The steam boilers at Chatterly were in a proper boiler house.

    Yes. I noticed that and thought it might just be the K1 in the film. Then 45407 charged into view...
