Paul Catchpole - photo taken Sept 2003Paul Catchpole is the editor and proprietor of Locomotives International, a quarterly magazine focussing on obscure and often ancient railways outside the UK. 

Paul was one of the first magazine editors to take a serious interest in the 5AT Project, and in June 2000 he published the first of several articles and editorials drawing attention to the project, perhaps the most memorable of which was titled "What Could You Do With £1.7 Million?" which drew a lengthy response from David Wardale that began with the words: "Well, if it was my own money I might just buy 850 000 pints of Black Douglas Ale and live merrily ever after". 

All of Paul's editorials and articles relating to the 5AT project can be found in the Articles and Letters pages of this website, which can be found under both the Promotion menu heading and the References heading.
