As planned, I visited the exhibition at the weekend. It was really interesting to see photographic records of all the engines made in Leeds that had been shipped out to Sierra Leone. Anthony Coulls who has written a book about the Sierra Leone Railway was there to chat to folk. He is a fount of knowledge about Leeds engines. I am not a railway buff, but some of the other site members could have had a field day talking to him. For anyone who is interested, the book is called SIERRA LEONE RAILWAY ADVENTURE and costs £3.50. The ISBN is 978-0-9563317-7-9.
