Did you know? 

  • Chris in his spare time has a passion for railways and is a Locomotive Fireman on a Preserved Steam Railway. 
  • Before becoming a CAD technician whilst working for Owen Williams Rail Consultants, Chris had a very unique job! He was involved in the track renewals on the West Coast Main Line in preparation for the Virgin ‘Pendolino’ Trains. As a DVD operator, he would note down any obstructions relevant to the design of the Pendolino using footage stored on DVD-RAM gained from a special train housing eight cameras. In short, he probably saw more of the WCML than anybody else in the country!
