Bob Darvill


It is with great sadness that we must report that Bob Darvill, who has provided the Industrial News column for many years, passed away early on Friday December 6.  Bob’s knowledge of the industrial loco scene was formidable and his love of this specialised but fascinating area of the railway was clear to all who knew him.  All at Railways Illustrated extend their condolences to Bob’s wife and family, and his friends and colleagues at the Industrial Railway Society.
