Alpha Rail's longest serving employee

Alpha Rail has bid farewell to one of its longest serving employees, Robert (Bob) Harpham.

Bob joined Alpha Rail in 1985 as a 34 year old and there is not much Bob has not turned his hand to on the shop floor. Machine operator, saw operator and latterly a fork lift driver. Cut Bob in half and he’d probably have Alpha Rail visible like a stick of rock!
