There were some dirty hard jobs on the railways in those days mate. My Granddad was Head Shunter at Saltley Gas works.
I remember trainspotting there in the 1960s the amount of trains and the length of the trains coming in all day was staggering.


I've just downloaded their records, interesting stuff mate.
