EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to 1973 at Swindon Works, where Jayne Clarke, a remarkable woman and dedicated employee, takes center stage. Having joined the Works straight out of school, Jayne's determination and hard work propelled her to the prestigious position of supervisor. With grace and confidence exuding from every pore, Jayne is captured in the cab of diesel locomotive No. 1023 Western Fusilier - an iconic symbol of power and innovation. This particular locomotive holds historical significance as it was the last Western diesel to undergo repairs at Swindon Works. Jayne's involvement in this momentous event did not go unnoticed; she became the face of these celebrations through a series of glamorous photographs that immortalized her contribution. Her radiant smile reflects both pride for her accomplishments and admiration for the legacy left behind by these mighty machines. This photograph serves as a testament to Jayne's unwavering dedication and passion for her work at Swindon Works. It also pays homage to all women who have defied societal norms by excelling in traditionally male-dominated industries. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we celebrate not only Jayne Clarke but also countless unsung heroes whose stories deserve recognition within our rich industrial heritage.
