Brought up in Surrey, Adrian joined British Railways as an Engineering Management Trainee in 1970. After twelve years managing various maintenance organisations, including helping to launch the HST service on the East Coast Mainline, he ran the first Driver Only passenger line in the UK. A spell running BR's express parcels company, Red Star, was followed by leading the creation of Train Operator, Rail Express Systems. This was excellent experience, which helped when he led a Management Buyout for Chiltern Railways, which went on to be one of the most successful Train Operating Companies. In 'retirement' he is still active in the Rail Industry.
