Talyllyn Railway appoints new engineering manager

The world’s first preserved railway has appointed a new engineering manager.

Graeme Wigglesworth takes over the engineering reins at Talyllyn Railway from Chris Smith who has left after five years on the Mid Wales coast to work at Churnet Valley Railway.

Graeme spent 20 years in IT before redundancy gave him the opportunity to join the Wells & Walsingham Light Railway as a seasonal driver. He finished that season as operations manager before moving to become engineering Manager at the National Tramway Museum at Crich.

He has been a member of the Heritage Railway Association Business Development Committee for several years and vice chair of the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway Society, a DMU driver and driver’s assistant at North Norfolk.
