On Friday 31st July we said our final farewell to Grenville who
passed away on 20th July after a long illness.
The service was
held in Evesham at All Saints Church, and afterwards at the
A good number from Carriage and Wagon and other
areas of the Railway were in attendance.
Grenville joined the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway in 1982
and in his time he had been with Permanent Way, Signal and
Telegraph, and in Operations as a Ticket Inspector, a Guard and a
Guards Inspector, and even a spell as Winchcombe Station Master. He
joined Carriage and Wagon in 1990 and was with the Department until
he retired as a volunteer in 2014. Grenville said that Carriage and
Wagon was always his favourite, and when asked what he liked most
about it, he said it was the comradeship.
He especially loved working on goods vehicles and here he is
happily painting a Dogfish ballast wagon in November 2013.
