Quotes

[recounting the plans to re-open the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway]
Graham Mitchell: I remember one of the local mill owners saying "I don't care what you're going to run on the line. I don't care about the locomotives or the rolling stock. I want to know: will there still be a 7:15 train for my workers to get to t'mill?".
