Signalman’s Morning Audio CD by Adrian Vaughan. One of the UK’s foremost railway historians, Adrian has published over 30 book titles in a writing career which spans almost 50 years.

Adrian Vaughan was born in Reading in January 1941 and grew up with the GWR and its nationalised successor. He became a volunteer porter at Challow station from 1953 until 1956. During this period he learned how to drive a steam engine and work a signal box. Following a spell in the army he re-joined the Challow staff, this time as a paid member in 1960. He became a signalman at Uffington a few months later.

Adrian Vaughan was a signalman for fourteen years and an amateur footplateman for six.

Adrian wrote three memoirs of his time on the railways. The first of which was Signalman’s Morning. This audio CD is over two hours in duration and is narrated by Adrian himself.
