Many of the photos originally shown here, and some which remain, were taken by him years ago when he was just getting interested into railroad photography and railfanning. Understandably, the quality of some of these older photos is not high. Jones has been travelling around the Carolinas for many years hunting out present and former stations and photographing them. He has contributed several hundred excellent photos of depots and other railroad structures for this site. Because of the higher quality of digital photography, in some cases, Mr. Jones’ photos have replaced those which originally appeared on this site. Many of these photos depict stations which no longer exist. We also thank Rev. David Carriker for providing his extensive collection of historic depot photographs and Lynn McConnell whose research into the history of North Carolina depots has been an invaluable asset in aiding us to properly identify a number of the photographs on these pages. This site shows the various and many different station styles throughout North Carolina plus a number of other railroad structures throughout the State.

Tommy Lee: After the 4,000 painkillers I am relieved to retire
It was a spotter’s paradise, and I wish I could have gone there more often, but as the journey involved catching a train from Leeds and changing stations at Manchester, my mother had a morbid fear that her small boy could get lost somewhere along the way. It never dawned on me that she had another, more tangible reason, like ‘Mother Love’, for example, but since she offered no other explanation, her refusal seemed very unfair.
Didn’t she realise how important this was to me? But the answer was an emphatic ‘No, no, no! A few weeks later I met the doyen of young train spotters called Bonzo. Aged thirteen, he was a veritable professor on railways, who taught me all I needed to know about the Stanier ‘Black 5’ two-cylinder s with Belpaire fireboxes, tapered boilers and outside Walschaerts valve gear; the 3-cylinder express variant ‘Jubilee’ class and rebuilt ‘Royal Scots’, and the 4-cylinder ‘Princess Royal’ and ‘Coronation’ class Pacifics.

North of Folly Lane bridge. A shunter which would at Dallam shed. I have many happy memories of my grandfather and the railway. He was a driver, and as a child of about years old I went down to Dallam shed with him. He also took me to work with him on a number of occasions after he gave up main line driving. He was a lad that rode round the town in the early hours on his bike with a long pole.
It has to be said he was glad to see the back of steam.

Getaway driver Noakes was shot four times by the officers as he reversed into them in a desperate bid to escape. At the time of the raid, in September last year, Noakes was on bail for another robbery and the other men were all out on licence for previous violent offences. At Manchester Crown Court all four were ordered to serve lengthy jail terms.
They had meticulously planned the raid on the van, which was refilling cash machines in east Lancashire. They carefully trailed the vehicle on its route from Agecroft, in Salford, in the run-up to the raid. But they were spotted eyeing another cash van in Wythenshawe the day before the raid. Police, who had Richard Walsh under surveillance, swooped the following day as they waited for the van at a Co-op car park opposite the bank in Haslingden.
When police blocked them in Noakes rammed into them in a Mini Cooper. Police later found a 9mm handgun, balaclavas, a sledgehammer and gloves.

The former – the mindset and spirit of the city’s people – is very special indeed. However, the road of that name, with a capital W, is about as horrible as it gets. Has anyone ever travelled on it and not be gripped by terror at where to come off and what lane to use, or indeed where the bloody hell they are?
I remember a story about a tunnel but no idea if it was true! It was a sad and, most likely, avoidable day when the church came down. The bell was left in the rubble and was saved by the Hoylake Outdoor Pool Trust who took it into safe keeping.

Holt mod Jim and I had decided early in the week to give the moderate ride a miss but to ride up to the Gallery Coffee Shop in Hawarden and then cycle home. This is exactly what we did but events conspired to turn it in to the moderate ride. We were joined soon afterwards by Mike and the five of us set off for Hawarden. We turned right towards Queensferry and followed the twisting road past the back of the Airbus factory at Broughton.
After turning right at the roundabout we turned left into Rake Lane and started the inevitable ascent up to Hawarden and what would normally have been the starting point for our ride. There were a number of other Easy Riders present but most were heading off on the brisk ride and the only addition to our group was Dave P.

Lambeth Council redefines potholes When is a pothole not a pothole? When the local authority says it is, and that depends on how much dosh is in the kitty. Lambeth Council in London, for instance, used to take responsibility and fill ’em in when they had a depth of at least 0. But now they won’t spread the asphalt until the hole has turned into a crater at least 1.

So why the move? The damage to Britain’s roads caused by “bad weather” has reached a new crisis. Council’s are increasingly cash strapped.
