Hi Bill,This is from The Gloucestershire Echo for Monday 16th July 1934:FIRE NEAR BROADWAY STATION.The early hours of yesterday Mr. Jack Russell, of Broadway, noticed smoke issuing from a stack of coal at the station wharf. He immediately poured water on the fire, and thinking he had put out the fire he went home. Later on Sunday morning, Mr C Collins, owner of the coal, saw that the coal was still burning and more water was poured on it".I do have a pdf of the paper but my e-mail is down, but I will send this to you if you would like it.Terry
Hi Terry,Let me have a copy when you get a chance. Thank you.
Slightly off topicBut i was wondering, are there any photographs similar to the link avaliable? I grew up in this area and i have NEVER seen any photographs showing trains using the Honeybourne Line in this area of town (St Pauls - Lower High Street) area. would love to see some if anyone could recommend a link or book where i might find some!http://www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk/Reinstate-lower-High-Street-station/story-17044854-detail/story.html
Audie Baker has a picture of High St Cheltenham halt with a rail motor in his book about the line.Can I make a suggestion to those making comments - try not to be 'Anonymous' when chosing the identity - it's nice to know who you are talking to :)I use my Google account - it's dead easy.
