British Rail Carriage Cleaners Working At Craigentinny Railway Siding, late 1950s


About this memory

"My mother Mrs Georgina Reynolds and fellow workers. [My] mother is in the centre of the back row.

"The empty trains from the Waverley Station went down to Craigentinny Sidings to be cleaned - ordinary carriages and sleeping accommodation. The women worked shifts - 6am to 2pm, 2pm to 10pm, and nightshift." - Helen Reynolds [2008]
