I started at Annesley on 11th January 1960. In 1965 the writing was on the wall for the closure of the GC so in March of that year I transferred to Toton. Disillusioned with diesels, I left the railway service in late 1966. Currently working for a finance company, I live in Derby with my partner Pauline and step-daughter Kerry. I am now a fireman with Peak Rail.
