Thank you Peter.

I'm trying to work out what year I first went exploring down there, I'm pretty certain I was still at primary school the first time so must have been between 1972 and 1974 I think.

Hi there
IIRC one of the Bilton Jn signalmen was a bit of an enthusiast and I am sure a colleague mentioned that he had been loaned a photo album a while back by the family. I will try and seek out further information if it is of interest.
Kind regards
Matt the Signalman

Hello Matt

I’d definitely find that photo album of interest. I’m always looking for information about that area.....as I slowly (very slowly!) develop my plans for a layout. I will be modelling the Gas works interchange sidings at Bilton Junction.
