Joint Chief Executive, Enroute


David is particularly interested in capacity constraints on the rail network, having spent many afternoons on his way home from school waiting for delayed trains on Platform 13 at Manchester Piccadilly. Nowadays he can usually be found somewhere on the Trans-Pennine route, or on his way to Hungary by train.
