Some sad news.

My first post on the forum for a while,
I'm sorry that it has to be such a sad one.
He will be much missed. R.I.P.
Much Respect.

I had just read this elsewhere. Sad news indeed, but what a legacy he has left behind in railway preservation as well as wildlife conservation.

I will always remember the day I met him near Longmoor just after he had bought the 9F. He very proudly showed me round the 9F and the 3MT Standard loco which he also owned. I spent about two hours in his company, much to the chagrin of my wife and three little girls at the time. A truly memorable man in many ways. R.I.P. David.
