Thats the one David.

My dads first job when he came back from the war was electrifying the railways.

 

It's a small world, Lyn........spent my entire working life involved in the signalling side of the railways.

I recall a company called 'British Insulated Callender's Cables' laying trackside cables along the West Coast Mainline during the modernisation & electrification in the late 50s/early 60s......Signalling equipment (my side of things) was largely by Westinghouse; an American based company.

Out of curiosity, I googled:   "British Insulated Callender's Cables was formed in 1945 by the merger of two long established cable firms, Callender's Cable & Construction Company Limited and British Insulated Cables. Subsidiaries could trace their roots back to submarine cable manufacturing on the Thames in the 1850s. The company was renamed BICC Ltd in 1975."

Tripped over my own foot and fell flat on my face on the terrace David   It could've been worse - I smashed my face and shoulder on some big flowerpots, but luckily I found the plastic ones and not the big terracotta ones - I could've lost my teeth!

Really sorry to hear this, Dove...bet you're driving him indoors potty!

Aww, Dove....will a hug help? I would imagine for you, this would be a killer.  How did you manage to do that?

I'm thinking of opening an 'Emergency ward 10' thread.
