One of our main, and most helpful, Transport Scotland contacts for many years has been Frazer Henderson, Head of Transport Policy. Unfortunately for us he announced his retirement in June. Frazer has always been a valuable person to talk to, a fount of knowledge about everything to do with rail in Scotland, always patient and ready with advice and information. He kept us informed about various projects and arranged for us to attend major conferences.
Frazer has introduced us to his TS successor, Fraser Lawson, and we look forward to a similar fruitful relationship with him - remembering all the while to spell his name with an 's'!
We know that Frazer is not just going to sit back and relax as he can often be found in the most unlikely places around the world pursuing his special interest in island flora, mountain flora and wild tulips. As the Alpine Garden Society website says, "He is happy to find plants and talk about them!"
On his travels he combines the main purpose with chances to enjoy whatever music he finds, as well as appreciating fine architecture that he happens upon. FoFNL wishes him a long and happy retirement.
