Train Doctor is the story of Roger Senior's career in the railway industry, from 1968 when the author joined British Railways, until his retirement from Great North Eastern Railway. The book takes you from the 1970’s period, with its first generation Diesels, through to privatisation in 1994 and the electrified East Coast main line. This will be of interest to enthusiasts and modern railway historians, with its inside look at the railway industry during a time of considerable change. The author began his career with first generation diesel classes, on the Eastern Region, of what was then British Railways and went on to work with the High Speed Train Fleet, when they were first introduced to main line service, in the 1970s. This is a story of troubleshooting, with many different types of modern traction over a period of twenty-five years, an insight in to the trials and tribulations of keeping the railway running, in all weathers and at all costs. Roger Senior later worked with electric traction, both before and after privatisation, on the East Coast main line, finishing his career with Great North Eastern Railway as the Resident Engineer for the refurbishment of the MK1V fleet known as the ‘Mallard’ project.

Ronald White-Cooper may have worked as a doctor in London's slums and tended to badly wounded men on the Western Front, but when he arrived in Dartmouth in 1920 to set up as a GP he found himself facing some unique challenges. From the normally reliable midwife convinced she was being haunted to the retired colonel suffering mysterious fits, from the farmer who insisted rubbing in Bovril had cured his bad back to the young girl dying of tuberculosis, all his medical skills were put to the test. Ronald initially did his rounds on horseback but gradually the world changed, bringing not just cars but innovations like antibiotics which were to change medicine for ever. Over the years Ronald became a much-loved part of the community, often helping those who could not afford to pay him, and is remembered fondly to this day. Full of wonderful characters, written with warmth and humour, Call the Doctor brilliantly evokes a bygone age.

Will their love change the past, or secure it? On a steam train trip to publicize her firm’s proposed high-speed rail link, Penny Barton meets Fletcher Dawe, a historical actor playing a Coshocton dry goods merchant and railroad investor. She’s fascinated with his period costume—and more—and is thrilled when he tells her he’ll call. But when she’s ordered to find him again for a client—or lose her job—it’s like he never existed. Equally determined, Fletcher Dawe will complete his rail link on time despite sabotage and broken equipment. Yet when he tries to keep his promise to call on the beautiful stranger, he discovers no one in town has ever heard of her. Frustrated with her inability to locate Fletcher, Penny finds a photo of him in a local restaurant—dated 1855. He existed all right, a hundred and fifty years ago. When she digs into the history of the railroad, she learns that things were not as idyllic as they seem, and that his lockmaster, Dan Hudson, died trying to stop the train. And that not everyone was excited to welcome the fledgling railroad to town… Keywords: time travel romance, 19th Century historical romance, railroad, women's rights, Irish, historical romance

The book is an autobiography of the writer who from an early age was a prolific note keeper, a habit which enabled him to amass thousands of written pages of information which he incorporated into this text. In the storyline are to be found descriptions of incidents he witnessed during the period 1928-56. The book’s cover is a photograph of Gibraltar taken in 1890 from Campamento Spain and before Gibraltar’s harbour was built. It shows the fortification walls as the French and Spaniards would have seen them during the Great Siege (1789-83). The Irish Flag represents his wife’s birthplace and the Union Jack his. Most of the photographs in the book are from the family’s archives and were taken when photography was in its primitive and non-pixel stage. In his young life the writer, oblivious to the landings occurring in the nearby Port of Algeciras, missed the advancing army of General Franco by a few hours despite the fact that gunfire could be heard a few miles away. Four years later he was to cross a devastated Spain on his way to boarding school in England. On that occasion they were also unaware that Hitler’s armies were testing the Dutch defences before coming down in top gear. Their experiences in wartime Britain, the doodlebug, the North West blitz, his Stonyhurst College experience and the aftermath of peace are all recorded. The writer talks about the changes that took place in Gibraltar and his father’s election to the 1st legislative Council as the only candidate elected on the 1st count. The Queen’s visit to Gibraltar and their connections with the Maharaj of Jodhpur during the last days of Imperial Britain are also described. The book is one of the selected Alumni stories for the tercentenary celebrations of the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin 2011.
