The Ramblings of a Railwayman

Join Geoff Burch as he talks about his first interest in railways as a train spotter and as a 15 year-old straight from school starting his railway career as an engine cleaner, working in the boilersmith’s shop and eventually becoming a top-link fireman based at Guildford Motive Power Depot.

This gave Geoff a privileged opportunity to work with a diverse group of drivers and locomotives until the final day of steam on the Southern Region, Sunday 9th July 1967.

The talk is accompanied by an exclusive selection of photographs.
