The anticipation of a train coming by or finding the next spot to watch a loco coming along the tracks is a time of complete focus for me, disconnecting from the rush and busyness of life. On 19 March 2022, he was invited to the "Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear" exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, in partnership with Gucci. Though reading of 2 million tik tok followers flashed a warning and the shots of him looking like ET, what is all that? As i said i have no interest in Tiktok but if Francis has finally brought some well needed good attention for a new generation to discover railways through a good lens then i will welcome this.

Thereafter, he began posting other collaborations to social media alongside Rosalía, Thierry Henry in a Puma advert, [44] and Sam Fender.

The adventure filled memoir from the world's most beloved trainspotter, TikTok sensation Francis Bourgeois. Why everyone – from Joe Jonas to Gucci – is obsessed with TikTok trainspotting sensation Francis Bourgeois".

It's nothing to do with 'jealousy', they just don't need or want a 'poster boy' making media appearances on their behalf.

From sleeping in a car to get a good shot of 73962 Dick Mabbutt to trainspotting with Joe Jonas, Francis Bourgeois has been on one hell of a ride over the past year. He is also known for his penchant for scootering, which he frequently incorporates into his videos and other public appearances.Having read the book, however, I have no doubt whatsoever that Francis is 100% genuine in his love for railways. It's a good book to capture these scenes and learn Francis's niggling doubts about things and his double image. I'm not sure if a non-rail enthusiast would understand quite what the excitement about rail enthusiasm is , however and might not get as much out of the book. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. He explained: "Honestly, I just started out because I wanted a creative outlet during lockdown, and my first videos were just having fun.

Now retired, I discovered the diesel bashers at heritage railways without realising it's a cult until reading this. I've followed Francis' journey from his TikTok beginning to this book and enjoyed every step of the journey so far. The books aims to immerse readers “in the sights and sounds of the railway” as Francis takes readers “on an epic journey and shows you the joy of following your own passions. In The Trainspotter’s Notebook, Francis allows us to experience the highest of highs and lowest of lows when chasing down the perfect loco.In June 2022, he attended a Gucci and Adidas' event at Peckham's Liberal Club commemorating a collaboration between the brands, which he promoted on TikTok prior.

If we want people to care about passing the torch onto a younger generation for volunteering on heritage railways and supporting mainline steam locos, i think we do need to make more of an effort to welcome more people in and to allow for the hobby to finally overcome the sad man stereotypes as they are yet to die off.
