Fred Bateman
Fred, a Bletchley man

Aylesbury born but, Bletchley bred
Proud man by the name of Fred
Had a daughter and four sons
Had their family whilst they were young

Head of the railway tour in Bute St. Station
Keeping the trains running for the nation
To the Midland Road Station
Our Casey jones aka Fred Bateman

Spent his life working on the trains
Even the great train robbery he entertained
Making royal carriages for the queen 👑
All these achievements kept unseen

On the tracks in the oil and mud
You’re not a Bateman if trains aren't in your blood!
Whether it’s Wolverton or Old Oak Common
All those depot’s will never be forgotten

Lovely memories of the old LMS Ivatt Class
Beautiful trains of time gone past
So many changes since trains were steam 🚂
In a train worlds life I lived the dream
