RH20 A time exposure in late 1943. The B4, 6098, new from Gorton Works after a General, was a formidable engine but today, she is worked to Thorp Arch Factory and back with the afternoon munitions workers train from Westgate, via Kirkgate, Normanton, Castleford, Burton Salmon, Church Fenton and Tadcaster. Load 10 coaches, pretty full but a piece of cake over a level road. Fireman Charlie Owens, a Cockney from Hornsey and Driver Bill Pearson, once from Wakefield GC and now at Ardsley. He is almost on the site of his long closed shed.
