Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but top link driver, elder statesman, Roy Cale sadly passed away after a long illness bravely borne on February 3rd 2017. Roy suffered with an aneurism for the last ten years but was always up for coming along to every railwaymen's meeting planned and loved to talk of the old days and was a master in trying to identify familiar faces on 'new' photographs that appeared from the old steam days.
Roy's funeral will take place on Thursday February 23rd at Claines Church at 14.30 hrs and afterwards at the Claines British Legion club. Regards Chris Wilkinson.
The photograph (below) shows class 166 three-car diesel multiple unit No.166203 at Great Malvern Station after arriving with the 07:21 from Ealing Broadway (train code 1W13).
