WATCH me in a new History Channel series starting this week about railways and warfare, called Combat Trains. It’s on Sky and Virgin among other channels. I’ve done some thrilling stuff on World War II, based on my book ‘Steaming to Victory: How Britain’s Railways Won the War’. Here are some pictures of me filming in Churchill’s top-secret railway HQ at the disused Down Street station in Mayfair. (It was very dirty and spooky down there!)
