Thankyou filsgreen.

Obviously I'm new compared to some on here.
My dad Jimmy worked for British Rail and was well known around the station area. More so because he pulled a boy off the tracks and saved his life. The story was apparently followed up with the Bootle Times or Echo, dad was awarded £2 for his bravery.
My mum told me this story early this year - sadly she is no longer with us so I can't ask her anymore details. We lived in Oriel Road, and my dad and brothers knew Tony Flynn .

Our house backed into the platform. There is a car park opposite now and the house is flats - I think. All of that row were railway workers houses when we lived there.
