More Memories from the Footplate

John Aldous, former Grantham cleaner and fireman, recently sent us some more memories of his time on the footplate which we're sharing in a new page here.  It's a pleasing complement to our popular series exploring the Woolsthorpe and High Dyke branches, Railways Rediscovered, because John spent many hours on ironstone trains, both up the High Dyke Branch, bringing the heavy mineral out from the quarries there, and on the main line delivering it to the steelworks.
