About this recording

In a recent Wick Voices interview with Ian Giles, he talked about the Yarrows Trust and the refurbishment of Thrumster Station on the old Wick to Lybster railway line. He talked about Jim Rosie the station master and how Ian helped facilitate the arrangements for Jim’s granddaughter to get married on the platform at Thrumster station in 2015. In response, Jim’s granddaughter Margaret Fox contacted Wick Voices and agreed, along with her father, also Jim Rosie, to be interviewed talking about her wedding and her grandfather. They recalled fond memories of the station master and Jim went on to talk about his own experiences of working on the railway and how he eventually became a train driving instructor before his retirement in 2008.
