An ex member of Moseley School's science dept, Roger Norfolk, was featured on page 231 of the 2016 Christmas Radio Times and was on BBC4 on Thursday 29th December in "Flying Scotsman from the Footplate" actually driving the train.
Roger started in the Science/Physics dept at Moseley Modern in the 60s and was a star of many productions in and out of school and designed and ran the stage lighting for years.
He was always a steam railway fanatic and a volunteer driver at Severn Valley Railway. Indeed he encouraged pupils to join him to help restore old engines and on several occasions both myself (Roger Green) and a friend, Robert Perry who later became a guard with BR, joined him to help restore old engines - a process that included many hours getting covered in dirt and grease while scraping rust of chassis with the possible reward of a ride on a steam engine footplate later in the day.
When Roger Norfolk got fed up of the constant changes in education (in the 1980s I think) he left to join British Rail, becoming firstly a mainline train driver and later a trainer of train drivers. A highly successful second career. He moved down south but kept his links with Severn Valley and regularly came back to do his volunteer shift. He was/is a lovely man.
