John Babbage

From Festipedia, hosted by the FR Heritage Group

John Babbage joined the FR PW department at the end of 1967 (October) in time for the push to Dduallt. His experience as a farm mechanic and his Landrover were noted as being useful. [1] He worked particularly with Fred Howes in 1968 - 1970 in improving the ride of the track and track maintenance methods and equipment. After leaving the FR in early September 1970, he farmed nearby until he died in a farm accident in 2013. [2]
