  1. This is the best I can do for what you've supplied
  2. Are you referring to the 'Lindbergs' on Merseyside?..... They looked like the GEC compartment units! :-)
  3. There were two sidings on the down side on the eastern side of the level crossing opposite the box. They formerly gave access into a goods shed - The Chacewater cement train sometimes detached a few 'Vanfits' there! :-)
  4. Bullhead is much quicker and easier to change in an emergency! :-)
  5. A 'Relief' Train which was put on at short notice, and not advertised to the public - A common thing in times gone by! :-)
  6. HAXBY?......Well I never. - My daughter lives only a couple of miles from there - Here's hoping you will allow me to see my old station in miniature once you're settled in! :-)
  7. Most definitely the 46s - I signalled several 46s down there in the 80s -'Don't remember any 45s though! :-)
  8. That must have been for maybe only one or two seasons, circa '65-67 - I don't remember it! :-)
  9. They never normally got beyond St Austell, although I do remember them turning up empty in both Truro and St Blazey yards! :-)
  10. The only 'Motorail' through Camborne was conveyed in one or two GUVs at the Penzance end of the overnight sleeper train! :-)
