Gorton, originally uploaded by nogbad the bad.
This will mean more to some than others.

Added later: My paternal grandfather had a reserved occupation during the war because he worked at "Gorton Tank"; more formally "Gorton Locomotive and Carriage & Wagon workshops and the Motive Power Depot". That's also where this engine was built. Sadly my grandfather died (of natural causes) during the war years. The workshops closed in 1963 and many of the men transferred to Crewe.
