Chris is responsible for maintaining the merchandising team volunteers database. He also has to ensure that there are sufficient volunteers for each event that The Trust sales team attends and for the on-board sales team for trains that Tornado pulls. He then has to ensure that the volunteers turn up in the right place and at the correct time. Chris is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Transport and Logistics. He started his working life in the schedules office of Leeds City Transport in 1963 and ended his time in bus operations running West Midlands Travel’s largest garage at Walsall before moving into computer systems for transport operations. He is now semi-retired and works two days per week providing support for the systems, just to keep his hand in. Dealing with his Trust duties, which also involve inventory control for The Trust’s line of merchandise, nicely fills the other five days!
