|Adrian Gray is either a current, or recent Director, Staff member or Volunteer on the railways or associated support groups. This entry only appears as a matter of record.|
As a (much) younger man Adrian was a footplate volunteer at Boston Lodge in the late 1970s and early 1980s, being taught to fire on Mountaineer by Mick Whittle with Ted Evans as driver. Once qualified Adrian worked on Linda & Blanche, firing to Warren Shephard, Russell Burridge, Dave Yates and the legendary Phil Dowse. In those days of blended waste oil fuel there was rarely a dull moment!
Although primarily interested in the FR's heritage Adrian also helps to ensure the supply of volunteers for the future, by acting as one of the organisers of the annual Kids Week.
He should not be confused with an author of the same name who has written several books on railway subjects, including the South Eastern & Chatham Railway and Railway Murders. However, the FR's Adrian did contribute to the Middleton Press book Branch Lines around Portmadoc 1923 - 46, along with Michael Seymour. Adrian also edited The Spooner Album for publication.
