Hello

The LocoEmotive and LocoEmotion website has been created and will be developed by a Father and Son team of Robin and Taliesin Coombes.

The name comes from a play on the words Loco, Locomotive, Locomotion, Emotive, Emotion, Motive, Motion and the ‘E’ world we now live in – electronic, environmental and energy conscious.

Robin Coombes has had a life-long passion for all aspects of railways as well as a professional interest in transport strategy serving as a senior rail manager during the 1980s. He is a Chartered Architect, and now Chairman of B3Burgess a national architectural practice. Along with his other interests he also acts as a international advisor and consultant on design and environmental strategies.

Taliesin Coombes as well as sharing a passion for railways and interest in photography has love of sport, including diving, rugby and canoeing and computer games.

All photos are by Robin and Taliesin Coombes. We would be delighted to hear from others with comments and suggestions at the contact details below.
