Over the past few years I have written several articles for the railway press covering various subjects. Some have been associated with a book launch, others focusing on a particular Diesel locomotive subject, sometimes associated with my job. I continue to make submissions to the excellent Traction Magazine and will add these to the site 3 months or so after publication.
