Eric Treacy MBE and Bishop of Wakefield

.

.
Eric Treacy MBE and Bishop of Wakefield was a keen photographer of English Railways and The Treacy Collection of around 12,000 photographs of his forms part of the National Railway Museum's archive.
.
How ironic then, but probably fitting, that he died from a heart attack on 13 May 1978 at Appleby station whilst waiting for a train hauled by the steam locomotive the Evening Star .
.
This photo is of the plaque at the station dedicated to his memory.
