INVOLVING TUNBRIDGE WELLS FIREMAN HILLMAN 

On the 11th September, 1899 between Tunbridge Wells and Groombridge, Fireman Hillman went out onto the running plate oiling-up his locomotive No. 287 Burryhill. The old fashioned lubricators retained so long by the Brighton necessitated visiting the front end while running with the steam off. The tallow cups were then opened and the lubricant sucked in and thoroughly distributed. The oil the cylinders when stationery meant only one section received any benefit, and the other remained dry. Hillman was bending over the left hand cock, when he was hit by a pheasant and flung of the engine. By some lucky chance he lived not only to tell the tale, but also to eat the pheasant, which failed to enjoy similar good fortune.
