DEDICATED TO NORMAN GUY 1919-2014
Norman Guy was a dedicated railwayman for forty years and an archetypal Dalesman born in South Stainmore. Quite simply, he was one of most gentle and modest men you could meet. This picture is of Norman at his levers in Kirkby Stephen box in 1983, a year before he retired. Norman leaves behind his wife of 74 years, Kathleen, three surviving children, nine grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and one great, great grandchild!
