A bloke doing something to something….
On 29th Dec. 1981, during the last few days of Deltic operation, 58 year old York driver Harry "Oddsocks" Wilson is in the cab of 55021 for what could have been his last Deltic turn.
Now 100 years old Harry Wilson travelled to Scarborough on Saturday 19/8/23 behind 55013 (alias 55009) as a guest of the Deltic Preservation Society and UK Railtours. He is seen here in the cab and alongside the loco, clearly enjoying the limelight.
What a character!
Holiday makers and trams. The Port Soller terminus, Majorca
Great to see he is still with us!
I remember him well, driving the BR 'York Circulars' and 'Scarborough Spas' in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The National Railway Museum welcomed a group of young female engineers from Ukraine’s railway preservation organisations to the museum on a study tour:

Sunny going up, dry while having lunch, sunny going back down. The half hour wait for the train at the top of the Brienz Rothorn Bahn...
What do you mean, watch out for the fish?
A brief respite, before departure.
One from yesterday.....
Come on you two, finish up, we've got to find the track again!
What is it that draws people to watch trains? Don't know, but I've been at it for more years now than I care to remember.
