About the Podcaster!

Hello, I’m Jeff Chambers, and though I’ve spent 50 years in engineering (mainly of the electronics variety, and still ongoing), I’ve always had a love for railways.


Railway Podcasts seem few and far between, so I thought it would be fun to try to put a few together, told from my own unique perspective!



Your beaming Podcaster, Jeff Chambers, on a freezing cold November day, at Ulverston Station.

I love the sign at Ulverston, pointing to the Subway, especially the rather formal  ‘beyond’. It was here more than 40 years ago, when I arrived in the area. It’s as though the sign’s designer was saying, “Go to Lancaster, or even Preston, if you will, but ‘beyond’, are you mad? Is there anything beyond Preston in any case?”

Just my sense of humour…..
