All the 'foliage' looks to be in trays/boxes so would be instantly removable. Maybe it's a runner under all that?
Seems I missed this thread!
Love all the pics that i've just looked at!!
Was advised to put this pic in here!
Rusty but not a relic as it's quiete new!!
Some crusty old coins that were retrieved from (I think) Chatsworth lake when it was drained and heaps of money removed!, These non current currency were dished out to the helpers!
These may be knives and forks now or railings!
My cousin on the footplate of one of our fleet of RR powered Sentinel loco's before they were all scrapped around 35 years ago and replaced with German Kamags..
An old electric stand on truck that also went to the scrapyard in the sky with an ignominious end, These were weird things to drive, There were two levers, One was forwar/back/fast/slow, T'uther was for steering!
It hauled thousands of tons of stuff during it's life (So long as it was put on charge at bthe end of the shift!)
That gas tower looks amazing so many buildings and structures could be saved and repurposed rather than replace it with a bland design.Not sure if I've already posted this one, rescued from a London college before it was further damaged by ignorant people on site.

A couple of pics from the Kings Cross redevelopment area off York Road, there's some nice old warehouses that have been nicely refurbished around, worth a look if you're in town.
I assume this track turntable was next to the railway sidings to help load into the warehouses?

Look what they've done with the gas holders!

Better than scrapping them off to the Chinese!
