    Jackie was such an incredible & inspiring lady. I loved working with her, especially during the Santa’s. I helped in the ticket office & looked forward to our chats about many things, but mostly the railway. She was so generous with her knowledge & experience which fascinated me. How lucky was I, to know her & spend time with her. I will miss her so much & remember her always. Sending much love & heartfelt condolences to Claire & family X

    So shocked and saddened to learn of Jackie’s passing. Been a pleasure to work with her for the last 20 or so years even if I didn’t always agree with everything.

  12. Ian Beacock

    Peak rail have been so very fortunate to have had Jackie in charge. I recall some years back when I was made redundant and had time to be able to come up to the Railway to undertake various jobs but sadly due to my redundancy had no money to buy fuel with. Jackie so very kindly offered to pay for this over the coming months thus enabling me to continue attending the railway pending me getting back into full time employment. Thank you Jackie. this was an exceptional gesture. You will always be remembered. Sincere condolences to Claire and family.

  13. Ellen Horne

    We were all shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Jackie’s passing – what a lovely lady she was – always made me smile and laugh whenever I saw her and always had such a good sense of humour and a twinkle in her eye. I know she will be sorely missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know her. I’d like to pass my sincere condolences to her lovely daughter Claire, thinking of you at this sad time and sending love.

  14. Josie

    Jackie you are so greatly missed. I’ve been so lucky to have known you. Thank you for giving me confidence when I started with you on the Palatine doing the Sunday Lunches and Afternoon teas. This will always hold a place in my heart due to the care you showed us all. I have many happy memories with you and will miss you. Sending my love to Claire, I’m so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Jackie xx

    I didn’t know Jackie socially but I always looked forward to meeting her and walking on the Peak Rail route which, despite dificulties, was managed, operated and maintained by excellent teams. Jackie ran a very good railway – a reference standard for the practical application of the The Railways and Other Transport Systems … Regulations 1994 – a practical standard which will be managed by those with whom Jackie worked and retained.
    My condolences to Claire and family.
