    The "B-Type bus" on line 4 of the main paragraph is an AEC B-Type, Reg. No. LA 9928.

    "Old locomotive of 1846 Coppernob" - that's Furness Railway No. 3 locomotive, "Old Coppernob".

    "Locomotive 1000" is Midland Railway locomotive number 1000.

    "Queen Victoria's State Coach" is known as Queen Victoria's Saloon.

    "Swindon fire engine" is a Dennis "N" Type fire engine, Reg. No. AM 2747.
