During an unexpected quiet interlude at Middlesbrough station, 'K1' 2-6-0 62005 waits for the right away to Battersby Junction and the Esk Valley line, the 5Z09 15;17 Carlisle High Wapping Sidings to Grosmont positioning move, just after sunset on Monday 16th September 2019. Such a tragedy that the station, once with an overall roof, was devastated in 1942, but some of the original ironwork survives at the eastern end, as does the signal box visible at the western end of the station.

Hispano HA-1112-M4L Buchon “White 9” (G-AWHH)
The Hispano HA-1112-M1L “Buchon” is a licence built ME109 G produced by Hispano in Spain in the 1950’s. The “Buchon” is fitted with a late spec Rolls Royce Merlin, rather than the DB605 of an ME109. This installation gives the aircraft tremendous reliability still maintaining the fantastic looks and performance of the ME109.

This aircraft, serial number 145, was constructed in Tablada Seville in 1958 and served with the Spanish Air Force as serial number C4K-105 until 1965. The aircraft was resurrected from storage, along with many others, for the filming of “The Battle of Britain” in 1968. After the completion of the filming the aircraft was shipped to Texas where it remained untouched in storage until 2015. The aircraft was then shipped to the UK by Air Leasing LTD in 2017 for restoration.

Edmund Roβmann was one of the most respected leaders in JG52, ‘Paule’ flew in the Battle of Britain before transferring to Russia. In July 1943 he landed behind enemy lines in an attempt to rescue a fellow pilot but was captured by the Russians. He had scored 93 victories, and been awarded the Knight’s Cross.
Edmund Roβmann died 4th April 2004.
