Christopher G.C. Vine - Author

Chris Vine has loved anything mechanical from a young age turning his childhood bedroom into a mini workshop!! He started making things early on,with his first working go-kart at the age of seven. It had a car battery and starter motor as motive power and a morse key as the switch. The next dangerous device was a motor bike made from a tiny child’s bicycle and a lawn mower engine. The drive involved a large and vital pulley from his mother’s washing machine.

Many years later he fulfilled his dream of building his own locomotive and miniature railway, it was this that inspired him to write the books so he could share his knowledge of railways and engineering with the next generation.
