About this deal

As he makes his way up a carriage looking for a seat, Bourgeois is peppered with dirty looks and muttered asides and, in one instance, a two-finger salute. He is an observer of the world around him and paints rich pictures with his words even when describing the most ordinary things. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

In mid-December 2021, he was accused of donning a superficial persona after photographs from his adolescence emerged, as well as videos of him raving. The thing is that when it comes to the 'sad man' jokes that many hobbies have faced, they have usually had a resurgence and have seen a new influx of poeple going into it with an open mind and with mainly good results.It's more important to be true to your passions than what anybody else thinks according to Francis and I agree strongly with this. He then rekindled his trainspotting pastime during the period of COVID-19 restrictions and frequented the Pot Lane overbridge in Berkley on the edge of Frome. I'm not into to trains so I used this book to zone out to when walking the dogs during the train information parts. As a Rail enthusiast, yeah i admit Francis stuff isn't something i would watch and i think the hobby already has good ambassadors. There is quite a lot of technical detail which is clearly there for the true train spotter; to help the novice there is a useful glossary of the jargon of the train spotter.

Writing this book has allowed me to verbalise the pure joy I feel through my hobby, and I hope that The Trainspotter’s Notebook inspires readers to reconnect with their childhood passions and embrace every part of themselves wholeheartedly.I then got 'it' and understood Francis simply loved trains and allowed the viewers into his passion on his terms. Congratulations to YMU Literary client, Francis Bourgeois, on the launch of his new book, The Trainspotter’s Notebook. Publisher: Transworld Publishers Ltd Country of origin: United Kingdom Pages: 336 Dimensions (mm): 240x162x32mm Weight: 0. 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. I've followed Francis' journey from his TikTok beginning to this book and enjoyed every step of the journey so far.

After experiencing a surge in popularity, Joe Jonas contacted Bourgeois; on 12 January 2022, the two picnicked [12] and went trainspotting in rural Milton Keynes.

Another shows his reaction to the arrival of a British Rail Class 377 train travelling from Littlehampton to Southampton Central, during which he waves at the train driver and then proceeds to fall out of his chair; the video has garnered over six million views. Halfway through the episode, Bourgeois takes Lingard to a diesel festival, where train enthusiasts pour on to diesel trains just for the thrill of the ride. Luke Nicolson (professional name Francis Bourgeois) is just an author who chose to create a name for his online and now publishing, activities, which no more make him a 'fake' than the 13 members posting in this thread with their RUK handles (which includes me, - I do not live my life using the class number of a 1960's EMU). Afterward, Bourgeois appeared on the Gucci Podcast alongside Bryanboy to discuss the relationship between fashion and social media. Biography: Francis Bourgeois is an English trainspotter and social media personality, best known for his videos posted on Instagram and TikTok on the topic of trains.
