Three of the accidents here involved Deltics. I have no box diagram for this location though i do have a lot of S&T plans and locking charts given to me by the locking fitter who relocked the frame after the 1967 'accident'.

I've said it before on here but no apologies for repeating it - he was a disgrace to railwaymen. I heard some while back that he died, I hope he rots in hell.

After reading the book and chatting to some S&T guys who knew a bit about it i reckon they could have got rid of him long before the incident.

One thing i will say,hq1,with regards to railmen (in my experience anyway) he was an exception rather than the rule.You're a decent lot on the whole.

Hello Boys,

Back in Blighty after 20 years, and boy is it a shock. Never mind. Got no choice. Back for good and looking for work, but in the meantime to remind you of what I like best:

Yes, GWR land is a little strange, but the museum is okay I suppose. Only temporary though as I am looking for work anywhere in the UK.

In the meantime here are two more.
