The opportunity was taken to have our Annual "Track Inspection" the same day as the Interring of the Ashes of the late John Morley, who helped the PWay Department considerably by maintaining and fixing our Plant.
The LMS Inspection Saloon, which is owned by the Watkinson Trust, was added to the Service Train formation for the day. It was for our exclusive use and thanks go to the Owners and Keith Holyland, the Engineering Superintendent (I believe anyone can hire it, at a cost though!).
It gave us an excellent view of the Track and we perused a possible Track Plan of the layout at Grantown on Spey. We retired to the Cairngorm Hotel for a beer and a hearty lunch and returned to the Saloon to imbibe in some more light refreshments and chat.
Bob doing what he usually does on a PWay day!
Later a Special Train was used to convey friends and colleagues to the final resting place of John Leon Morley
Overlooking the Milton Loch, his eulogy was repeated for the benefit of those unable to attend the Leicester Crematorium late last year, a tribute poem written by Mae Munro was read out and a few religious words were said.
