I first discovered the joys of the L&B, almost by chance, in about 1988, and have been involved since then. Personal circumstances limit the time I can spend in Devon, but I have been able to help with several generations of the official L&B Web site, and I am Secretary of the Kent Support Group

I was first interested in volunteering when I became a member because I like doing practical work. I have worked on many areas of the railway, but track laying was certainly the most fun.

Age: 53 From: Sussex
Department: Ops (Trainee Guard)

Railways have always been in my blood, as my late father was a signalman, but narrow gauge has been my favourite. Very early in my life I was captivated by the story of the L&B, and a return to Minehead in 1997 gave me the chance to follow the course of the line in a sort of pilgrimage.
