About this deal

One word he doesn't use is 'copping' or is it 'kopping' which was to spot a loco for the first time. This is an utterly joyful book and I’m delighted that Francis’ debut has found the perfect home with Transworld. Francis isn't having any of this - he is an open and proud trainspotter who encourages all rail fans to nail their colours to the mast. On 23 May 2022, Transport for London gave Bourgeois special access to promote London's new Elizabeth line, making him the first passenger to board the railway's Class 345 train. A signature component of Bourgeois' content is his incorporation of the GoPro fisheye lens, which distorts his face.

He didn't want his videos to affect this process (which might have been either positively or negatively) or his subsequent career, so he posted under a pseudonym to try to avoid that. The book gives a short history of the author's love of trains before going on to give a series of episodes in his railway adventures all over England and the lengths he goes to find and photograph interesting trains, especially his beloved HSTs (Inter City 125s) and Class 37s.

I started a new school in Year Seven, when my favourite thing to do after school was come home and play with my model railway, but I realised I was experiencing feelings of loneliness, so I decided to try and fit in a bit more at school.

Bourgeois' initial TikTok posts consisted of fake "interviews" and comedic doctored videos of himself conversing with celebrities over Instagram Live, including British rapper Swarmz, drill artist Digga D, and alt-pop artist Billie Eilish, as well as Kylie Jenner, [32] which garnered him an early following. It happens in the end, but only after something much more momentous than you would expect from an 11-minute YouTube video.In April 2022, he performed a tailwhip on stage during a Sam Fender concert, who he met at the NME Awards a month prior.

If Trainspotting With Francis Bourgeois can do more of this, if it can tap into what makes Bourgeois tick rather than use him as an object of fun, it deserves to be on television proper very soon.
