Mack Brooks, organiser of trade exhibitions such as Infrarail and CITE, has announced the sad passing of editor Ken Harris.
The organiser released the following statement: “It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our colleague Ken Harris after a short illness earlier this summer.
Ken worked as editor on all things Railtex and Infrarail with us for many years and was a most valued colleague and a dear friend. His expertise and in-depth knowledge of the history and background on any rail industry development will be missed just as much as his kindness, professionalism and dry sense of humour.
Many of you will have met Ken at one of our shows over the past 20+ years, where he was hosting the onsite Press Offices and enjoying meeting old and new colleagues.
Ken leaves his wife Jean, two daughters Beki and Claire, and new grandson Laurence Kenneth.
We will remember him always.”
