Alan Hayward worked as a guard at 6G during the 1970's through until the 1980's.
He briefly left the railway but returned as a signaller in the
Llandudno Junction area until transferring to
Poulton signalbox on the Blackpool line.
While Alan worked in the local area he took many photos of
his railway colleagues as they worked.
He has asked me if we could make a feature of some of his photos
on the 6G website and I am very pleased to oblige.


Thanks to Alan Roberts for providing the caption details and scanning the photos
on all of the Alan Hayward pages.
