What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was Peak Rail in Derbyshire.

LORD PHIL (built by the Hunslet Engine Co Ltd for the War Department in 1943) was in charge of passenger services and had no problems handling a five coach train.

This Midland Railway wagon was looking every bit its almost hundred years age though… ‘For Internal Use Only’ refers to a vehicle not allowed out onto the main line but still used in an industrial location.
