Mark Cooper sent us this post.

Does anyone have any memories of the Railway Engine Works that was on the Stafford Road near the ECC (Electric Construction Company ) in the 60′s.

I was an apprentice in those days and wondered what are your thoughts on a Blue Plaque to commemorate those magnificant works.
I replied to Mark

Mark there are many stories and loads of info on the internet regarding the Great Western Works at Dunstall Hill.

But if its workers tales you are looking for I would think there are a lot of stories out there from old Wulfrunians
