Transports of Delight:
Last Steam at Tuffley  Junction, Gloucester

A personal recollection of public transport from early days initially spotting at Tuffley Junction and around Gloucester with a group of friends. After school I work in London for British Rail but still return home to Tuffley Junction regularly. Being with British Rail during the last days of steam encourages Continental travel by rail. University introduces me to transport in the Potteries and Tyneside and trips with friends further afield in search of diesels. Particular thanks to Roger Speck and Jeff Treece for sharing their memories with me!
