Notes by Barney Staples:
Retired. Hoped to have spent more time pursuing my railway and bus interests, but other things seem to have thwarted that. How did I ever find time to go to work? Had not bothered to log units for many years until joining Locoscene. Unfortunately many of my early notebooks were destroyed plus many many other sightings were not logged. Enjoy seeking out "oddballs" such as 01/5s and departmental locos.
