  1. Myself and brother both worked at Jacksons bakery in 1969. We delivered bread, cakes, bacon and pies to all the surrounding estates in Stockton, Middlesbrough, Darlington, Redcar and Margie and Saltburn. We drove the “The Daisy Vans” and more often than not they frequently broke down and you ended up with soggy fresh cream cakes in the summer. Plus driving down rough dirt roads to many farms, several cakes ended up stuck to the roof. Wednesday was our mid week day off and we all used to meet up at several pubs in town as they were open all day then due to the markets etc, a brilliant bunch of people to work with and many happy days.

  2. Picture was taken looking North, with the train on the up Stockton and Darlington line, the down next to it, the two lines to the left are the Leeds, Northern lines, the up and down Stockton and Darlington lines were lifted in the early 80′ and a junction installed just behind the brake van, known as Stockton Cut Junction.

    • Does anyone know how the drive to the wheels was arranged? Did the two engines go into one gearbox with a common output shaft, or was it effectively two separate engine/gearbox/wheels combinations?
