Making slit trenches by using 75 Anti-Tank Grenades.
It was the end of civilization as I knew it. When Beeching became BR chairman in he turned the screw even further. Not only did he orchestrate thousands of station closures, he slashed the railway network by half, and had the radio station given me a chance to explain this perplexing - and, some would say, chaotic background to train spotting in the Sixties - then I could have voiced my opinions in a more rational manner.
Getting to the point Below The renowned 3. With two large cylinders, six foot two inch driving wheels - plus a huge boiler producing an endless amount of steam…these locomotives exude muscle!
What else could you want This all stations service - due into Carlisle at 7. As a boy, Stephen Owens remembers seeing the 3. However, dreams were inspired by this: The mid-afternoon stopping train left our station at four-six - six minutes past four - a perfect time for me to see it on my way home from school.
It occurred to me, years later, that the only reason I went to that school was to see the four-six on my way home.
I spent half my afternoon lessons wondering about what I would see later. The four-six was always hauled by a steam engine; often, but not always, one with an inspirational name. I learnt much more about literature, geography and history, from the names of locomotives, than I ever learnt in my afternoon lessons.
And, its appearance from the short tunnel, a slow and gradual revelation, was always shrouded in smoke and steam, as if to keep its identity a mystery until the last minute. It was a mixed train - I doubt there are such things anymore - a mixture of passenger coaches, parcels carriages and an odd assortment of vans at the back.
It was always long, and it was always on time. They were obviously people in no hurry; people with time and patience, and a sense of their destiny and the importance of the train.
It started its journey in a woolly, industrial city - Bradford; then, beyond the smaller mill towns of Shipley and Keighley, continued through green fields to Skipton, and then to Settle.
It had already started to climb by now, and the scenery became bleaker and more desolate - sheep country. It passed the stark peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside; stopping at isolated, lonely stations - Ribblehead, Dent, and Garsdale; up hill and down dale, over viaducts, through countless tunnels, to Appleby, and green pastures new.
From here the line followed the Eden Valley, until arriving at the citadel at the end of the wall, on the northern border - the important railway town of Carlisle.
It stopped at every station along the way; it was sometimes dark by the time it arrived at its final destination. In summer, the journey might have been idyllic, but in winter, it could be intimidating and harrowing - it snowed aplenty in these parts. Steam engines were consigned to preservation societies and museums; the passengers of the four-six, disappeared, as if into the ether.30 Dec - Public Reply to Tony KEMP: From the Baptist Historical Society website, I can tell you that Ernest Wilfred Ketley was born in and died in His obituary can be found on page of the Baptist Union Handbook for A public library should be able to obtain a copy for you.
