Taking the train…

Here’s a picture of the FMSR Locomotiv Class G.

The locomotive was built by R. Stephenson. It was placed in Perak Railway with the name FMSR 47 in July 1901. It was scrapped on November 1931. A series of 34 4-6-0 locomotives were built by Kitson (16), Hunslet (5), Neilson Reid & R. Stephenson. 

And just for interest sake, here’s a picture of what the inside of a first class coach looked like 🙂

Yes, folks. This is Ipoh back in the early 1990s. Compared to the skyline of today, not many tall buildings were around back then.

Cathay Cold Creameries?

Could this have been a branch of Cold Storage? Or, perhaps Cold Storage’s competitor? We don’t know, so we’re hoping someone out there could help us out. Our anonymous donor didn’t say much about this photograph (and unfortunately, we are no longer in contact with this person). I’m sure someone out there visited 47 Cockman Street at some point in their life…

The ‘beer can test’ ?

Following your enthusiastic comments on an old blog post, we decided to put up something else from the Triumph Owners Club (Perak) Magazine. These are from the Driving Tests at the Military Square, Ashby Road, Ipoh (back in 1975). The car on the right was said to be a Triumph Herald 1200 saloon. Car lovers care to tell us about the car on the left? 🙂

On another note, what IS a ‘beer can test’?
