Fred Bateman

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
