I have been fascinated by railways since a small boy. My father
used to take me to open days at Plymouth Laira Diesel depot and generally encouraged me with my interest. I was never into
'spotting' as such but would spend time at Plymouth North Road, and the various stations and halts around Keyham, where we
used to live, waiting to catch a glimpse of a Western, Warship, Peak or Hoover!
I have collected a fair amount of railway books over the years
and love anything to do with British railway nostalgia.
I find model railways a great interest as well as a fantastic
way to relax and get rid of stress after a busy day at work! A few hours on the layout can work wonders.
Please see my seperate page for more detailed pictures and
text relating to the layout.
