Joe McGrew Boy Porter to Shunter

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Met up with my good friend Joe McGrew today and walked him home. He joined the GNR(i) at the age of 15yrs as a boy porter and worked himself up to shunter before closure. He celebrated his 90th birthday a few months back. Today he was still able to talk in great detail of his days on the railway.
