Sun Shining on Both Sides of the Hedges!
"I have been active in preservation in Victoria Australia since the mid 1970s. After spending about 15 years associated with narrow gauge activities a move in residence brought me in contact with main line preservation and operation. For the last 20 years this has been my focus. The majority of those 20 years has been in management. I have a keen interest and expertise in signalling and track works and developed skills in both steam and diesel locomotive maintenance and restoration. I currently manage a fleet of 10 operational main line locomotives and associated carriages.
I will be holidaying in the UK (based in Cheltenham) for six months from 31 March. I am looking forward to being involved in GWRS activities including Steaming to Broadway as well as per-way and S&T."
Now this would qualify for the furthest commuting Volunteer!
