Hiya Bob. Yeah remember the footy games by Theos quite well. Plus cricket and tennis down there.

Also remember the original nursery getting set fire to and the REMY going up in smoke around the same time. I had my suspicions then but couldn't find out who or why.

The Melly footy pitch was always getting used especially on Sunday afternoon with a 30 a side kick about (Mack the Admin will remember these as well) before the grass was all landscaped.

The tarmac sometimes had holes in and you had plastic bags with god knows what in covered by bricks and the tarmac rather than carting the debris away.

Good memories
what you looking at eh La?

Hi Chaps, The diesel locomotive in Joes picture of Orrell Park Station is an "English Electric" Class 40,
one of about 200 built from 1958, and were seen throughout most parts of the UK.
The "Deltic" diesels, of which there were only 22 of them, belonged to the Eastern Region of British Railways
and were mainly used on the East Coast Main Line between London, Kings Cross and Edinburgh.
The prototype Deltic locomotive which was also built by English Electric. Many of its component parts came
from English Electric factories here in the North West, the English Electric factory on the East Lancashire Road,
the English Electric factory at Strand Road, Preston, and I believe the prototype was assembled at the Locomotive
factory of English Electric/Vulcan foundry at Newton Le Willows, near Haydock.
Regards, Ray Smyth.

When the "Prototype " Deltic first came out it was used mainly on Euston to Liverpool and Euston to Glasgow trains , On our Wedding day 3-3-58 the prototype loco headed our train 2-10 pm Lime St to London---I believe it is at Shildon Railway museum now ..

330 Hawthorne Road at junction of Waterworks Street ' Waterworks Street Post Office'
Undated but possibly late 1880/90's or early 1900's. In the distance, beyond right hand row of houses ,can be seen a tall building which would have been the Albion Hotel , corner of Earl Road and Hawthorne Road .
