Meet the Team > Colin


We regularly ship engines of every shape and size all over the globe – to America, Australia and across Europe, with special arrangements to get locomotives to such exotic destinations as Tasmania (there's a rowing boat goes over once a week from mainland Australia) and Japan.

Colin’s the man responsible for making sure that everything arrives in a safe and secure fashion, building innumerable crates and boxes to suit anything from a Stuart 10H to a 7 ¼ inch gauge Britannia.

As an IT & computer specialist in a previous life and with a keen interest in full size BR diesels, he’s also our guru for battery-electric locomotives. Dodgy motors, faulty sound cards, freelance wiring ranging from "optimistic” to "lethal” – if it runs off a battery, he can probably fix it.

A stranger to the concept of "spare time”, Colin spends most of his life outside work on his motorbike, trying to escape the infinite list of DIY projects kindly provided by his wife and two daughters.
