My life-long interest in railways, and in particular in British railway signalling, was spawned as a child following many happy hours spent at my home station watching the trains and local mechanical signalboxes at work from the platform ends. After many years as an 'armchair enthusiast', I took the plunge and trained as a heritage railway signalman in 2011, and now regularly volunteer to work three of the signalboxes on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
