RH13 Bradford Exchange early in 1945. A GC N5, 5901, a good strong engine but with quite big cylinders. The fire had to be in perfect shape and the firing exact and the boiler not too full, otherwise there would be trouble. When I took this photo, I had left the injector at work and when I got back, I had too much water in the boiler and paid the penalty, much to Harold Binder's amusement, for I had neither 'stee-am nor watter' at our first stop, St Dunstans. But, by hard work, I made it to Queensbury up the fearful bank and all was well. The group: George Howard, just passed for driving with his young fireman, Hughie Cansfied. Harold Binder next to George, a GC man from Immingham and a very dear friend. He has the City of Bradford coat of arms in his cap. On the right is his regular mate, Harry Smith, 48 year of age.
