Rod Fowkes grew up a couple of miles from the country's biggest marshalling yard at Toton, between Nottingham and Derby, inspiring a love of the railways that encouraged him to sign on as a junior porter at Trent station in 1956. He spent the first 20 years of a long railway career in the London Midland Region and this memoir recalls operations during the 1950s and 1960s and includes many photographs, railway correspondence and paperwork.
