Pitmuxton Siding: The shot shows the approximate location of what was called Pitmuxton Siding; this lies between what is now Gairn Terrace to the north and Allanvale to the south. The location is shown on a 1883 Post Office Directory map of Aberdeen. It had been built to serve the Ruthrieston Brickworks (ca.1871-1883) north of the railway on the estate then called Pitmuxton. This name has almost totally disappeared from the city since Pitmuxton House was renamed Pitstruan House around 1850.

Whitley Bay: The impressive clock tower dominates the entrance to Whitley Bay Station on 25 November 2018 and is complemented by the formidable presence of a K4 telephone call box. The K4 is survivor of a single batch of 50, introduced around 1930. It is still possible to make a call or post a letter but alas, it isn't possible to purchase a stamp. Interestingly, non-working examples can be seen on heritage railways at Bury Transport Museum, Bewdley And Cranmore.
