The late John Vines
Here is a trio of pictures at Saltash, which Dad took on the same business trip as the recent views posted of Truro. Thanks to 'Warship' aficionados Steve Harrod and Martin Street for identifying the loco coming off the bridge as 854 'Tiger', on the then newly introduced 1C16 08.15 Bristol-Penzance service, which replaced the long-standing overnight Manchester-Penzance at the May timetable change. How complete the station facilities look, with bookstall, covered footbridge and a canopied building on the down platform - a sad contrast to the scene today.
Many of our viewers will be familiar with the name Ken Mumford - he lives at Swindon and has supplied much material for the website from there and elsewhere. Ken is a retired teacher, and was an active Lay Preacher and has now added to his many talents as the editor of the AERONIAN. He has previous editorial experience and has produced a very interesting on line publication. Kemble station is in particular mentioned in this edition of the Aeronian, there is much of interest on other railways and also buses and transport in general. So, if you are interested click on the link and you are there.
