After a period in the RAF he returned to the shop floor in 1953, later becoming an industrial consultant on Plant Maintenance. He retired early and joined the GW Society at Didcot and the Firefly project, constructing a broad gauge replica from scratch, a 23-year project for which he became technical director. He has previously written"The Steam Workshops of the GWR" and "Steam Rail Motors of the GWR.""
