Wetheringsett-cum-Brockford


The Mid Suffolk Railway Museum at Wetheringsett-cum-Brockford, WW2 Day

A lovely little set up with working locomotives. I was lucky enough to get a ride in the Guards Van. For diesel fans they also have a diesel engine.

 

Thomas Moy Coal Truck. I remember as a kid going to pay my mum's coal bill at their office in Ipswich. Facing the arch in Arcade Street from the Swan Inn it was on the left, now being used as a cafe.

A vintage Churchman's sign for Counter Shag. Chhurchman had a factory producung cigarettes and Cigars and tobbaco in their premises right behind the Churchman Stand at Portman Road. At the end of shift hundreds of women would fill the road all dressed in their blue work coats. The Churchman bonded store was over the road in the building now used by Ipswich Community Radio
