Imagine a small boy in short pants sitting in the front row of his local 'Flicks' during the mid-Fifties. Then the grumpy old commissionaire arrived, shone his torch at the offending boy and clouted him across the back of the head - 'Shut your cake 'ole you stupid little squirt! Humiliated beyond belief, the small boy's woeful sobbing was quite audible and he missed the rest of film through a stream of tears.It is one of two picture houses in Horsforth: the 'Imperial' on Town Street or the 'Glenroyal' on Okay, perhaps this scruffy urchin can't remember which cinema it was or even the exact year, but he does recall what happened next…he'd arrived in the middle of a public information film and the magnificent image of a speeding Class A4 60017 Flying Fox appeared on the screen.

The diversion was caused by heavy flooding of the ECML in south east Scotland and train services from Edinburgh were rerouted to St Boswells and then via Kelso before rejoining the East Coast Main line at Tweedmouth.
