Hello Howard, I remember this day very well, Geoff almost missing the train to Newcastle. I think we visited Gateshead,Darlington shed Darlington works ,Robert Stevies works and Thornaby. I was almost fourteen when you took this pic, where has the time gone? Around about then I drifted away from the Carlisle spotting scene, the reason being I met a lad whose father like mine was a racecourse bookie. David lived in Leeds,which appealed to me, we spent many days at York, Doncaster, Nottingham etc. He also had an aunt who lived in north London. We stayed there at least three times, handy for london sheds. Anyway enough about my spotting passed. if you could let me know when in March you are coming to carlisle and we can arrange to meet. Look forward to hearing from you, Davy Matt.
