The Bob Robson Photo Collection
Bob Robson was, for many years, No. 6024’s Chargehand Cleaner. He was responsible for the locomotive’s immaculate turnout over several decades, without his immense input No. 6024 would not have shone like it has.
Following his untimely death the society was bequeathed his photographic albums. Bob was a keen photographer of people, his position within the society giving him excellent behind the scenes access and thus many unique photographs. Our thanks to member Tony Jackson for scanning of the photographs in this section. We hope you enjoy them.
