Who Is Breaking the Law?

Who Is Breaking the Law?

Look carefully at the photograph one man is breaking the law can you see which one? The man standing on the left is mine manager Andrew Turnbull, so I am surmising that this is Kilton Mine? Simon Chapman has again assisted in answering our query, he tells us: ”This picture was taken at Kilton Mine in 1951 when the first diesel locomotive was introduced underground into the Cleveland Mines. The driver was Sidney Lightfoot.”

    This picture was taken at Kilton Mine in 1951 when the first diesel locomotive was introduced underground into the Cleveland Mines. The driver was Sidney Lightfoot.
