On his death, all of his historical records were donated to Crich Tramway Museum and the Sheffield University archives. These comprise thousands of postcards, documents and photographs which he had taken of various traction engines, fairground etc.

Apart from his collection, he also co-authored several historical books with other prominent writers, LTC Rolt (Tom Rolt), OS Nock etc. He gathered the historical facts from his large personal library, and authors then used this information to compile their books. Very often, he shied away from publicity, though his name is often mentioned in the forewords of these books as a contributor.

One of his greatest achievement was the saving of the Lion locomotive from the Liverpool Docks & Harbour Board workshops where it was languishing in disrepair. Mainly due to his drumming up interest in this piece of history, the Liverpool Transport Museum came about, where Lion was renovated and placed on display
