After 45 years service within various BR train planning units I retired in 2007 and have subsequently penned several articles which have been published in the railway press. Higher management "awarded" me the nickname Mr Mixed Traction because all other diagramming managers at Waterloo (SR/NSE) dealt only with EMU passenger work - my responsibility being all other NON EMU work. Having had four books published - The Great Iron Horse Chase:Europe (2009), The Great Steam Chase (2013) & Riding Yorkshire's Final Steam Trains ( 2015) and the Scottish Steam's Final Fling (2017).The History Press are currently progrssing Confessions of a steam age Ferroequinologist- recalling my travels throughout the LMR during the final four years of steam.

Using this site I have placed my entire photographic collection on it (1963 to date). Most pre August 68 steam shots can be purchased from ANISTR.com

Thanks for looking in.
