RH17 Halifax (Old) Station, late 1944. Ted Hailstone and I have as our guest on N1 4569, a well known schoolmaster from Doncaster Grammar School, Mr 'Pip' Appleby. He enjoyed his day out with us immensely and, in later years, visited me when I was Divisional Manager at Kings Cross. He was a signals expert and amazed our Chief Signal Inspector with his practical knowledge of the old GN signalboxes at Finsbury Park in the evening rush. A truly remarkable student of railway affairs from whom I learned much.
