i started work on September 15th 1965 as an oiler and greaser in Hirwaun / Hirwaun Pond, although the station was closed i knew the stationmaster Jack Boulton, he was a great character, happy days! i went on to work in Cardiff and Swansea areas as bases, but later covered the whole country in a different role but still railway based.
