I was a new starter at Staythorpe on 'A' Station, 1 September 1971. Craft Apprentice, stayed in digs at the bottom of Stapenhill Road, Burton-on-Trent. Mrs Griffiths I think.

Keith Tomlinson, Keith Brown, Ned Cooper, Pete Hurst, Pat Roach, John Edlin, Andy Richardson, Adrian Lamb, Phil Marsland, Graham Aries, Mark Robinson, John Fehah, Willy Bell, Willy Dungavel, Neil Blogg to name the ones that come to mind were there as well. Oh good times, good mates. The Barley Mow pub was important as well.
