The very sad news has reached us that BDCA member Neil Cameron passed away earlier this month.

Neil was prominent in the acquisition by Bluebell Railway of 1943 R&R 45-ton crane RS1083/45 (ADRR95215) and its transport from Newton Heath in c.1985.  The crane was brought into serviceable order at the Bluebell but fell out of use again in the early 1990s as a result of problems with the mechanical clutches.

In 2011 Neil dedicated himself to at least a cosmetic restoration of his beloved crane, organising finance and leading a team of volunteers.  However he had to withdraw several years later when he became obliged to move back to Doncaster from his father's house in Seaford, East Sussex, after his father died and the house had to be sold.

The Bluebell's obituary notice for Neil can be found at https://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk/blue ... index.html
