IT WAS good to read Stephen Lewis’s feature about Glyn Sunman and fellow trainspotters (The Press, August 4), but Glyn must have been a part-time spotter not to have seen three of the streaks.

We never went to the station much.

I was born in Scarborough Terrace next to a railway line so being a trainspotter was a natural hobby and still is in a small way, but as Glyn says, rooms go quiet if you mention it.
