The photo of the ICI shows how busy they used to be with their shipments of Chlorine and the like. The tracks no longer exist and were donated to the railway at Llangollen on a "dig it up and take it away yourself basis" who rolled up with loads of labourers and low loaders. Part of my job many years ago was loading the rail tankers with liquid chlorine and then hump-shunting them off the scales with a big stick. You then had to run alongside as they rolled down hill and then jam the brake stick in and press like mad hoping you could stop about 30 tonnes of tanker with brute strength a lone. Memories. Regards Beemer.
Paul I know your fathers name very well but for the life of me I can't put a face to it. PM me a photo to see if it will jog my memory. This photo was taken in the 70's (I think. I am sure some one will recognise the lorry type on the loading bay and correct me) of the rail complex then. The tankers on the extreme left are the ones I mentioned in an earlier post. All the tracks and locos are gone and Chlorine is roaded out know.
