At the end of September I visited Taiwan as President of the Heritage Railway Association (HRA), but also in the position I hold as the British Government's Trade Envoy to Taiwan.

I represented the HRA at the signing of a friendship agreement between the Alishan Forest Railway and the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway on 28 September.

Those shown in the image are L to R - Lord Shutt of Greetland (vice chair parliamentary all-party heritage rail group),
