GUEST,Barrie Roberts remeber the old steam trains,fondly ok (62* d) RE: remeber the old steam trains,fondly ok 24 Jun 05


With the greatest possible respect, the City of Truro DID pull trains on the Didcot, Newbury and Sothampton Dock line after she was exhumed from York Rail Museum.

One of our lecturers at Wincherster Art School used to take out sketching parties --always to somewhere near the railway. When the City was due he would have his students line the fence to witness a real 'artistic experience'. He was quite right.

I am stirred to ask, whatever happened to former Brummie engine driver/folksinger Don Bilston, who recorded an album for Transatlantic in the late 1960s called 'Farewell to Steam'?
