After an initial period as a 'mourner' in the fifties at branch line funerals in the UK and Ireland, Tony Burges pursued studies at Southampton University followed by graduate school at Northwestern University, Chicago. His subsequent career in the Canadian government as Transport Policy Advisor in the Department of Finance, Director General, Grain Transportation & Handling, and subsequently Deputy Executive Director, Australian Railway Research & Development Organization earned him the sobriquet of 'Mr Branchline' among his colleagues. Retiring recently from a Washington DC based firm of transportation consultants he is now devoting his time to writing railway books in Ottawa. He is also the author of Railways in Ulster's Lakeland and other Irish titles published by Colourpoint Books, as listed on the inside rear cover.
