FLY2 10,106 Posted September 7, 2017 Report Share Posted September 7, 2017 Brilliantly put Col. Yes, the Brits were early 60's. Most I believe came from Stratford or Stewart's Lane.I attended FFGS from 56 - 62, so I was scurrying off to Carrington or Bulwell Common from say 58 onwards. I did see most of the Immingham allocation, but in my earliest visits, it was predominantly the superb K3's, B1's, and occasionally Standard 5's. Sometimes, there was a double header of two K3's, or a B1 coupled with a K3. God, I wish I still had all my notebooks, but other than one solitary 57 ABC, my mother binned them when I had the temerity to leave home! I've never forgiven her, and never will. Yes.... A lovely area in those days. I returned in a totally different capacity years later, as in March - September 68, I embarked on a fruitless career as a self employed ice cream salesman. I often parked outside the Deerstalker in order to cash up after a trying day. Crikey, how different things are now. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
