One thought on “Billingham Silver Band member Sid Mason

  1. I knew both of them very well, often worked with LoL, (sat on the left) I use to go in the Navy Club and see them. While working Train’s, he was I great bloke and driver, he was at Stockton Shed then moved to Darlington, then to Thornaby, he actually fired and drove the Hush Hush engine, of LNER, to which he was proud. he also had a good nickname when on the railway, one that I cannot written on these pages, but liked to go chasing after the ladies what ever age, he also liked a few beers, may he rest in peace.
