French manufacture, rocker and gridiron. (Well, that's what it looks like)
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

Rocker and Gridiron? Surely not. Looks like direct tappett to me.

Hi friends! here we have another example of a Ground frame manufactured by "John Saxby Ltd." at Creil, France, 1906. Saxby's son James established a signal workshop at Creil, near Paris in 1878. Disused equipment at Mercedes Station, 125 km away from Buenos Aires. This was a French investment Railway called "Compagnie Générale de Chemins de Fer dans la Province de Buenos Aires" F.C.C.G.B.A. (a video and some photos!)
