Those were the words of Emma Barnett of Great Gonerby, who had the shock of her life at Grantham station when a railway carriage hit the end wall of the down side refreshment room where Emma was working. It happened on Tuesday 8th June 1954 - only a month after Roger Bannister first ran a mile in less than 4 minutes.
