This pub sign is certainly a work of art. The inn is 17th Century so in contrast to that the scene is modern. I would image that the original meaning of The Engine Inn might refer to a beer engine, one that pumped the beer up through the pumps from the cellar. But this sign is appropriate because for past 4 decades in the nearby Cark Airfield there is a Steam Gathering with vintage steam vehicles used in agriculture, industry and on roads.
