Trevor blows final whistle at C2C Fenchurch St after 48 years on the rails
Whistle-blower Trevor Capps is a familiar figure at Fenchurch Street station—but is now giving it all up after 48 years in the rail industry.
He joined British Railways in 1963 straight from school, before it became modernised as simply ‘British Rail’ in the wake of the Beeching era cuts.
Trevor just missed the steam age when he started on the Fenchurch line four years after it was electrified—but has still seen many changes in the rail industry and retires this week from C2C, the privatised operators now running the Fenchurch-Southend network.
He has kept his career ‘on track’ in a variety of jobs including cuxtomer service and stints in the ticket office and even as a shunter.
Trevor looks forward to getting out and about on the railways more himself, travelling around the country.
