Is this the engine or the guard's van on the Mllwall train, known as the ‘Penny Puff Puff', seen here on the viaduct where it crosses Millwall Park? The line which ran from Poplar to 'North Greenwich' Station (where the Poplar and Blackwall Rowing Club is today) was closed in 1926, because the bus service had taken away most of its passengers.
