Technical Manager - Chris Thorn

I have been involved with diesel preservation for many years, having worked on projects including the restoration of 50019 Ramillies at the Spa Valley Railway as well as numerous Class 37s. I joined RRRG in 2003 and became actively involved several years later, helping to oversee the acquisition of vital parts for the project and coordinating numerous Booths raids on scrap 37s.  Together with my brother Tom I do much of the hands-on restoration work in Derbyshire but also ensure smooth running of the RRRG project by working on refurbishing parts in my home workshop when not on site.
