The DPS’ Mechanical Engineer, Alex Williams, has decided to move on and has left his post. Alex was so instrumental in the successful operation of our locomotives, especially D9009 which ran for seven years virtually trouble-free. Alex has been extensively involved with the aftermath of D9009’s failure on the rail tour last March 3. His Board colleagues wish him good luck in the future and hope he will remain in touch. In the meantime, Graham Clarke is acting Mechanical Engineer.
