Biography:

I was a career railwayman, before becoming an Accountant. My talks are historical and about railways, principally their Horse Departments which were large and a key part of the railway organisation.

My principal talk is about the Horse Department of the Great Western Railway, but I have other talks on the operation of Slip Carriages and the Severn Tunnel, together with the GN & LNW Joint Line

My talks generally last 45 minutes to one hour.
