Yes Paul, I remember Shane on rail tours many moons ago and only spoke to Shane once whilst working as a volunteer at Bendigo Tramways. He was telling me about his mother, who was unwell at the time. He struck me as a very positive sort of fellow and was always jovial. I think he was at Bendigo Tramways after tram parts or something along those lines.

Another “colourful tramway identity” has passed on.
Others knew Shane better than I; but I do remember him purchasing an unused W2 destination blind from me about 20 years ago. I presume it was for his tram – now at Bylands. Shane offered me a very fair price and I got the feeling he believed he’d got a good deal; a classic win win.
He struck me as rather formal person but with a good knowledge of trams. We enjoyed a pleasant conversation for several minutes and I remember him mentioning his mother’s poor health.
It’s rather sad to read of someone passing on and leaving no surviving relatives or close friends. I presume Shane never partnered. He would have been about 70? It’s good to see people from within the hobby have risen to pay their respects.
I wonder what provision/bequest Shane would have made for the maintenance and upkeep of his trams?
