  1. As a child, in the 1960s, living near low moor engine shed. Grandad was a driver. On this day it was school holidays. Nana was looking after us. The house was next to the shed. Grandad on shed duties. Took us into the shed. Climbed aboard a loco, took it to the water tower, back into the shed. Onto name house..I,he always wanted to do that again. Relive that historic day….a dream.

    • Great memories, you couldn’t do that today with much tighter controls in place at railway depots. Our full line trips proved popular but operational difficulties meant we have had to withdraw them for the time being.
