While out on a PhotoWalk with the guys a few weeks ago we ended up near the railway station. It brought back memories of summer 1960 when I was allowed to go trainspotting with my older cousin.
I can remember climbing up the sloping part of the bridge supports and standing on the top (clutching my notebook and pencil) to get a view of the trains entering and leaving the station.
This was the path that led to what was known as the “Birdcage” it gave a wonderful view over the tracks and the engine shed, and in 1960 there were still many steam trains running. The engine shed has long since gone and graffiti has replaced the occasional chalked message pledging allegiance to the local football club.
The images were taken with my Minolta X700 on Kodak Tri-X, developed in Kodak D76.
