Welcome to my website, which describes my railway activities, in the garden and elsewhere.
I'm a member of Southport Model Railway Society, in the north-west of England, and I look after the club's website. My main interest is in 16mm live steam.
I'm also the webmaster for Southport Model Engineering Club, which has a 32mm track, as well as 3.5", 5" and Gauge 1 lines.
I do firing and guarding turns on the West Lancashire Light Railway, and the occasional trackwork day on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.
I run the live-steam layout Hundred End at West Lancs, and their portable layout the Middleforth Light Railway. I also maintain their website.
I have my own portable 16mm layouts Kingsdown Roads and Walmer Bridge, and a railway in the garden called the St Aubyn Light Railway.

My photo was taken by Jim Ford at Tiger Hill, Darjeeling in 2004, with Everest, Lohtse and Makalu in the background.
