It contains a reference to a Motor Driving Certificate for an A S Thomas in 1943. It's an interesting book and can you provide more information on the attached ?

At this time the Port Talbot to Llanwern iron ore circuit was worked by pairs of Class 56’s.
56041 and 56050 can be seen passing through Newport station heading for Llanwern with a loaded train, and later passing Ebbw Junction heading once again for Port Talbot with the empties.
Note the former Ebbw Junction mpd on the left.. Many thanks Ron.
