Our newcomer railway journalist.
Nicholas is a newcomer to railway journalism and was born in 1994, but this meant he grew up at a time when the railways saw exceptional change.
Starting life on the last of the “Slammers”, and living near the old haven of Hither Green depot, meant he got to hear the sounds, smell the fumes and see the sights of heritage diesel triumphantly going out of service in the South East.
Having started with photographs in 2008, he travels the UK rail network and has recently visited Penzance, Inverness, Aberystwyth and Lowestoft, mainly following specials, charters, and, his favourite, BR built Diesel and Electric locomotives.
Nick has worked in various capacities, such as Signalling and Operations, at the Swanley & New Barn, Spa Valley and Bluebell railways, and is planning on visiting many others in the course of his passion.
He plans to continue the hobby into a career in the railway industry, where he would like to work either as a driver or a “Bobby” (which is railway speak for a Signaller, not a Policeman!)
