Even he looks steam-driven . . where do you find these characters ?!

@Ronnie 2¢: This probably doesn't help, but... My habit is to plan a trip somewhere on a Sunday afternoon. Having "planned" it, Mrs E, Betty and I, get "Lost" on purpose, just following "brown signs" or road signs to things that look interesting. These characters are to be found there, then we go on to whatever we had planned.
