Tributes to Colin Cameron who died in rail crossing accident, from Stroudco Food Hub on  Gloucestershire Live remind us that rail fatalities are not just statistics, they're real people.

I'll quote the first section of the article and urge you to click on the link above to read the rest.

Quote
We are shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic death of one of the founders of Stroudco Food Hub. Colin was killed last Tuesday in a terrible accident on a rail crossing at his farm in Frampton Mansell.

Colin was one of the handful of producer members who helped to set up Stroudco in 2006. He produced beef and eggs on his smallholding at Viaduct Farm between Stroud and Cirencester. Not only was Colin a producer member he also did some of his shopping at Stroudco – being a great fan of the pork from Stroud Community Agriculture.

Colin built both of the Stroudco sheds – the first one at Parliament school (as was) and the current one at Stroud Valleys school. He was a fine craftsman and took great pride in constructing buildings to the highest quality.

Colin has also been a director of the Stroudco Community Interest Company right from the start until his tragic death. He will be greatly missed.
