Robin's Page

Not necessarily railway related...

Robin Taylor is the Chairman of the Carmyllie Pilot Company, a position which carries bags of responsibility but no power. He is 49, married with two children and lives in Aberdeen. Just back from an 8 month stint in Ras Al Khaimah building an Amine plant.

Robin's ambitions are to work with animals and to get a copper capped chimney to go with a chrome green 46464 bearing the nameplate 'Toad Hall'. No Steam Railway poll here, pal.

In between working on 46464, Robin likes to play the piano and trumpet, both very loudly and very badly, and has recently taken up Scuba diving.

It is a little known fact that Robin is in fact two midgets on stilts. 

August 8th 2004. Just to prove we do do other stuff besides trains. On the grid at Knockhill for the last BTCC race of the day, where we were guests of independent team West Surrey Racing Colin Turkington started 15th on the grid and finished 3rd, whilst his teammate, Anthony Reid started 7th and won the race. And the lunch was excellent.

Summer 2008. Back again, thanks to my sister Lesley (holding the sign), who does the hospitality for WSR.

Ras Al Khaimah - March - December 2009

Mauritius - February 2009

Trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, but I managed to get some diving in along the north-west coast, as well as sneaking a look at the odd steam engine. Mauritius used to have a good railway system, backed up with numerous private lines to transport the sugar cane, but it closed in 1964.

Lake District - October 2008

New York - June 2008

Ninian South - June 2005

Testing the lifeboats gives a different perspective. Thanks to John, Kay and Billy the Peterhead Pirate for the free ride.
