February 3rd 2010.

Trefor Price has sent in the following photos that he has just unearthed at Dilys's home.
Some show Selwyn and Trefor's grandfather, William James Hughes who was the foreman of the
engine cleaners at 6G.
William wore a bowler hat for work as is shown in some of the rare shots below.




This first shot shows William , in his bowler hat on the left of photo, in front of the iconic
LNWR 2-2-2 Number 3020 "Cornwall".
This engine is now part of the National collection.
Photo is undated but possibly 1940 or before as the 1P tank in the background (6744)
was scrapped by 1944. (detail by John Powell)





The photo below was provided by John Powell showing "Cornwall" leaving Colwyn Bay with a
Director's special (undated).   Photo: H. Gordon Tidey.




This shot was taken at 6G and shows William on the right still in his bowler.



This is the famous shot of 6220 "Coronation" at the Junction for the filming of the "Royal Trains"celebrations
of June 1937 also shown on the "STEAM DAYS" page on this website.
William is on the left.
