Paul B and me were almost neighbours! :) He lived at No 19 Turner Lane  (just under the little subway) and I lived at no 17 but not at the same time :)
Just wondering how you went on with the trains at night.used to use the tunnel all the time on my way home,the trains really made a din.Seem to remember houses right at the entrance to the tunnel,were these yours?

Yes them were ours Jaywit. My bedroom was the front bedroom,so i could see all the activity at the station. The train noise never bothered me,supposed i just got used to it.I used to love watching the steam trains thunder through. I always wanted to be a fireman on one,not a driver. but they got phased out and replaced by diesel. Always remember going to Manchester,on the train,and on the way to Victoria,were dozens of steam engines all parked up going rusty,waiting to get broken up for scrap.

There use to be two houses going under the bridge at Charlestown . I lived on Robinson St About seven houses away ran the Oldham Rd Line you just grew up with the noise the trains made During the Wakes Holidays there were a lot more and when it was Foggy the Fog detinators use to go off on the lines also the use to have Oil lamps along the lines to show the way Health and Safety would not allow it today Fudge

What a memory
 Between Plymouth and Bournemouth we moved to Harwich a minor point but almost forgot the two kids were born there.

Hi Cyn,

I am wondering whether you mean Cranbourne Road and Abingdon Street?

I thought 'Crabbing' and 'Abandon' sounded so cute too, Thea!!!
