The train times on this page, Steam engines yards from your front or back door cups rattling on saucer's on the table as the train went past your grand parents would look at the clock and the only comment that was made the name of the driver and remark he is running early or late Then out goes the washing on the line
To have washing on the line when the train was passing was disastrous.the climb to Brymbo meant the fireman at to keep putting coal in the fire box causing black smoke and dust
