Bottom Line

Twelve chapters covering my initial interest in Steam Locomotives in the late 1950s as a Trainspotter then starting work as a 15 year old Engine Cleaner, performing Office Boy duties, working in the Boilersmith’s Shop and eventually becoming a Fireman in 1962. I give my account of working my way through the links with a diverse range of Drivers and Locomotives until the final day of steam on Sunday 9th July 1967 when I also had the honour of being one of the firemen of the last Locomotives to leave Guildford MPD that day. In particular, the ‘Drivers and Firemen’ chapter is dedicated to most of the men that I worked with on the footplate – some 86 Drivers and 73 firemen that were employed at Guildford at the time. Foreword written by David Shepherd CBE, FRSA, FRGS.
