It was sad to hear of Cec's passing here in Perth. WA, I first met him way back in the early sixties at the PN locomotive depot. For me as a young man just joining the railways Cec was a man to be respected and admired. Always willing to give advice to us young fellows...sympathy to all the family...a legend of the rails gone...
