Of course not; although this might have been mistaken for one. It is indeed a locomotive, one
of twelve 0-6-0T with enclosed bodywork to permit running under Board of Trade regulations
on those parts of the Great Eastern Railway laid on or alongside public highways. Warning
bells were fitted, as were governors limiting speed to 8 mph. Here No. 135 (Stratford 1903)
trundles slowly past Marks Tey about 1905, returning to Ipswich following overhaul at the
company's Stratford workshops. Later LNER Class J70 7135 and 8216, after 1948 BR 68216, it
survived until November 1953.
