In 1980 I interviewed Vinson Gulliver a former Great Central Railway driver at Liverpool Road, Manchester during preparations for the celebrations of the Rainhill Trials Locomotive Cavalcade. He became Britain's oldest man born 1887-1997 109 years. (The interview is available from the North West Sound Archive ref no 1980.009)
