This is an utterly joyful book and I’m delighted that Francis’ debut has found the perfect home with Transworld. 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.

The campaign served to promote DIRFT, the logistics aspect of supply chain management, and the sustainability benefits of rail freight. Luke Magnus Nicolson [1] [2] [3] (born 9 July 2000 [4] [5]), known as Francis Bourgeois, is a British trainspotter, social media personality, model, and author. In January 2022, he signed with the Books division of YMU, an international talent management company, [38] and he became a brand ambassador for GB Railfreight.Last trip I was on, word got round that he was up at the front in Premier Dining with his girlfriend, and every time one of the stewards walked through Standard the poor fella would get asked next time he went up to the front could he give Francis their Insta handle and ask for a photo. Lean added: “Francis is a born storyteller, which is abundantly clear in his euphoric, uplifting content that has captured the imagination of millions.

I personally am not on TikTok (or even know much about it) so have never watched his stuff, but it does fascinate me to see how young people react when he's around. Watching him convulse with happiness as a British Rail Class 390 Pendolino screams past him is – and I mean this with all the respect in the world – exactly the same as watching the Roswell alien undergo several bouts of electroshock therapy. When he started on TikTok, his gently eccentric performance made me wonder if this was a cleverly constructed comical portrail of a 'train spotter' minus the taped together health specs. He'd get off and all the kids on the platform who were filming the arrival would start chanting his name and asking for photos. Congratulations to YMU Literary client, Francis Bourgeois, on the launch of his new book, The Trainspotter’s Notebook.This year, we’re celebrating 30 years of Percy Pig and I want to make sure it’s a great day for him! On some occasions, he has been jokingly critical of the Thomas the Tank Engine series for its lack of realism; however, he has commended the show's use of modelling. Francis Bourgeois is a TikTok legend making cheery videos about trainspotting who has brought the hobby to a much wider audience over the last couple of years.
