John started his engineering apprenticeship at Gorton in the days of steam and also worked for a short time at Doncaster (including on the original A1s).

In addition to his many years experience in various areas of the UK, John has direct experience of steam loco maintenance in Canada (Canadian Pacific), Egypt (during his National Service), and Africa.  He also had experience of steam in Australia.
