Well the loco is count Louis, ex fairbourne railway loco

 

The banner behind appears to read Newcastle exhibition and the other one an advert for Newcastle brown ale

Wasn't Exhibition also a Newcastle ale? So it might not be "that kind" of exhibition.

This is a narrow gauge Atlantic loco, but does anyone have an idea of where it might have been marooned?

It's at S&D (Stockton and Darlington) 150 at Shildon in August 1975.

 

My photo of the loco is below which shows the same building..

Can some one confirm that this photo is taken at Newton Abbot please, and if not - where? The transparency has creeping blue dot disease, and so I'm glad I scanned it when I did. Of interest is the carriage W254M.

Thanks everyone. I will amend the slide mount details. I'm not sure who owned these images before I purchased them; but their knowledge seems somewhat lacking. 

 

There are no detail on this slide at all, but the coach number is E900270E, which I gather is now at the K&WVR.

Can't add anything about the coach, or the other vehicle other than it looks like a gauging vehicle, but it is at York. The buildings to the left once housed the museum before it moved to its present site.

 

Correction: The building behind the coach is the former museum, the building on the left (with the doors open) is the former carriage shed.

Here is another mystery location. I thought the company name on the sign might help, but it just says 'Railway Executive'. I can't even make out the type of loco, but it could be an Ivatt or Standard 2MT.

This looks as if it is crying out to be modelled, but I don't know the location. Is it York again? Or possibly Leeds?

It's York, site of the old station.

Well, after a lot of diligent research, and trying to order the slides in the batch I bought into the order they were taken, I believe I can answer my own question (which must be a first). I think it is a view from Station Road, Lockerbie looking under Bridge Street and out towards the goods yard which was beyond. I can't quite get to the position on Google maps, so if anyone is familiar with Lockerbie station and could confirm this, I would be very grateful.
