Rare Steam hauled Freight train at Chilworth Station

Henry Downing, the Porter / Signalman at Chilworth Station scratches his head and can't believe his eyes when this train was being loaded up with Honey and Wheat and was ready to depart for the Quaker Sugar Puffs factory.

This advertisement was spotted in one of the Women's magazines in the 1950's. It is good to know that a genuine British Railways member of Staff was used and not an Actor, Singer or Film Star as is often the case these days.

This old advertisement is part of the "ACE Alan's Collector's Emporium" collection.
