Whis­tle and I’ll come to you

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN re­sponse to the let­ter from Chris Geb­bie (Jan­uary 11), I too used to thrill at the sound of the whis­tle of a Gres­ley lo­co­mo­tive: in my case, it was the train from King’s Cross pass­ing through Wake­field West­gate. Aged about 10 and on my way home from a rid­ing les­son, I would gal­lop down the road to get a good view of the streak ap­proach­ing.

That thrill has never left me and, when­ever my chil­dren (now aged 32 and 36) come up from London, I delight in be­ing on the end of the plat­form, strain­ing my eyes, to catch the first sight of the train. Deb­o­rah Brooke, by email
