Charles Wake Locomotive  at the Northampton Ironstone Railway  

Charles Wake Locomotive at the Northampton Ironstone Railway


The volunteers at Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Trust are a committed bunch. Many of them are happy to dedicate a large amount of time to the upkeep and successful running of the Hunsbury Hill based site. And some are even happy to dedicate themselves to it in death. For carefully contained in the signal box of the station are the ashes of railway enthusiast Charles Wake. When he died the former railway worker asked members of the Trust, known as NIRT, to scatter his ashes at the site - but they went one step better and put them in its signal box. A former President and highly regarded member of the group, the signal acts as a memorial to Charles.Now he looks over the engine of the same name - another tribute from  his friends - as it regularly ferries happy children and their parents along the track of the former ironstone works.
