Here's a great video I stumbled across on Youtube.

This is back in the day when men were men and manual labour was common. You British rail fans will like this one.

No hard hats, no steel toes, no safety glasses, no hearing protection, no shields on machinery,  no safety gear of any sort in sight.  Yep, they were the days.

Built at Crewe works in August 1935 as LMS No 6207 and renumbered 46207 under British Railways, No 46207 remained in service until November 1961 when it was withdrawn from Willesden shed in London to be scrapped in May 1962 by Crewe works.

To Wounded Bear :  Back then building anything was almost more of an Art as well as a Science  .  We have lost the appreciation of what skilled artisans could and did do to create the technology  that we are dependent upon .  The  manufacturers  are looked down  on  by those who  never had to create anything  by and for themselves and have not even a clue as how to start.  This will lead to their downfall . Any nation that wishes to be a lasting power must be able to build  the tools that it needs locally  and  not rely  on foreign nations to meet their internal needs .
