Long gone, as can be seen by the recent photograph taken from near the original spot. Anyone like to guess the location?

You found it! Well done, sir. Never explored the area myself but this was supposed to be one of the locations where the fabled 'Strategic Steam Reserve' was kept. Hope they don't want to get them out in a hurry :D :D
