It is with sadness that FoFNL learned of the death at the end of last year of our member Keith Farr. Keith was well-known in railway circles for his regular contributions to Railway Magazine. He shared the writing of the longest running unbroken series of articles, Practice and Performance, with John Heaton. The series began in 1901 as British Locomotive Practice and Performance. In 2017/18 we published his article covering runs on the Far North Line in 1954 entitled Inverness: 'Somewhere in the South'. Keith is survived by his wife Amanda, his two children and three grandchildren.
