RIP Richard Hardy
« on: March 12, 2018, 12:50:18 pm »
I was sad to see in the Telegraph online news on 11/3/18 that Richard Hardy, former BR shed master and book and magazine article author has died.

I was formally interviewed by him twice when applying for a position with BR, and found him a charming man. After the formal interview, we had a chat about two steam locos that I was helping to preserve, and as he had worked on both classes, he had some first rate insights on their problems. He also knew some then current footplate staff who I knew at my local 'shed'.

He will be missed by those interested in the bygone steam/diesel era.
