Swindon Signalman Colin Baldwin

It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing away of former Swindon Panel signalman Colin Baldwin.

Many members and supporters of this group will have known or worked with Colin up until his retirement from Swindon Panel in 1995. Colin enjoyed a joint leaving do with his friend and colleague Glyn Thomas who retired at the same time.

Colin and his wife Sybil were kind enough to invite SPS to visit them at their house about six months ago to talk about the panel and Colin’s memories of it after they saw us on Points West. They were also kind enough to allow us to scan their collection of photos, now available in our photo gallery.

Our deepest sympathy is with Colin’s family at this very difficult time.
