A Brief History
Engine drivers were often great characters, and often legends in themselves. They had their favourite driving turns and their favourite engines. One well known story featured a driver by the name of Willie Wannell, a Scot working on the Great Central Railway. Apparently, whilst driving an O4 class on a local service out of Nottingham Victoria, he saw a broken rail in front of him, with several inches of track missing. Willie realised he hadn't time to stop, so what did he do ? He went for the big one and jumped the rail altogether, laconically describing the 04 as a "grand wee injuin"!
