The Late David Othen (1943-2016)
He had been interested in trains since he was a child in the 1940s. Early memories include standing on the footplate of the Flying Scotsman at King's Cross. He has photographed and taken video of trains across North America, Britain and Europe.
He was a volunteer on several tourist railroads and was a senior Trainman on the Salem & Hillsborough Railroad in New Brunswick. He was also fortunate enough to travel on the footplate of, and help fire, coal, wood and oil-burning steam engines and to drive steam and diesel engines.
