Mike Collins - Civil Engineer and Author


Railway Character Lines

Mikes' first published book, which is bursting with hilarious anecdotes, tales of mishaps and unforeseen incidents laced with the dour humour of the locals in their broad Yorkshire brogue. 






Too busy to Delegate

Mike's second volume recounting the trials, along with the banter, of the business of running the railway. 

Enter into this weird world of cants and chair screws, twistectors and traxcavators, pocket theodolites and gricers, where the humour is wry, the delivery straight - and the dialect Yorkshire!



Mike Collins is a retired Civil Engineer working all his time in Yorkshire.   He has been a keen observer of the characters he has met and their humour.
