Grown men playing with train sets, with a bunch of train spotters hanging around watching? No – not this time anyway. In a ceremony to mark the success of Bristol firm Veale Wasbrough in helping South Wales & West Railway issue its tender for privatisation, Nigel Campbell (right) hands a model train to the railway company's managing director John Mummery. Campbell said the issue for tender represented the first stage in the sale process. He added his lawyers had forged strong relationships with the railway team. Which just goes to show there are no sleepers at Veale Wasbrough.
