A Life on the Railway
By Colin Forse
Narrated by Faith Moulin
Colin Forse's railway career ran from 1948 to 1996. From a lad working in the Yatton West signal box, he progressed through being a fireman on the Cheddar Valley branch line and later drove steam and diesel powered engines including HSTs. He returned to steam in the 1980s when he became an Inspector on steam trains running over British Railways track. In an informal, chatty style, he tells it how it was - hard physical work that had many moments of fun. Illustrated with photos from Colin's own albums.
