New Richard Morris book to raise money for Railway Children

Listen to this article

Richard Morris started his railway career with British Rail in 1970.

His new book ‘Iron in the Blood’ covers 30 of the last 42 years. The book is full of amusing stories like the time he threatened the Kray Twins without realising who they were, forgetting to make Peter Parker a cup of tea, receiving a kiss on the cheek from Princess Diana, and organising travel arrangements for Hiron-in-the-bloodM The Queen and the Royal Family on the royal train.

With family connections on the railways that go back three generations, Iron in the Blood is Richard’s story of a remarkable career how he rose from British Rail trainee to executive director of the Strategic Rail Authority, operations director of Chiltern Railways and before retirement managing director of Crossrail and the characters he met along the way.

Tempted out of retirement to become director of business service and continuity at Eurostar Richard had always threatened to tell his life story and now he finally has.

The book would make an ideal stocking filler at Christmas if you know anyone who worked on the railway from 1970 onwards. More importantly having been inspired by David Maidment’s enthusiasm and dedication when setting up the Railway Children charity, Richard has decided that all profits from the book go straight to the Railway Children fund.

To order a copy before Christmas e-mail your postal address to Richard or text 07590 819488.

Books can be personalised to whoever you would like to buy for. You can pay by PayPal or cheque. The book is £10 plus postage and package.

Alternatively you can order your copy at Amazon.co.uk.
