We are honoured to have Stan Fletcher as our Society President. Stan was the English Electric engineer with special overall responsibility for commissioning the original locomotives, and clocked up over 150,000 miles behind 10000 and 10001. His knowledge of the original locos, and their good (and bad!) points, has been invaluable to the project. Stan recently officiated at the opening of the Society's workshop, named Centenary Works to mark his 100th year.
