David Catling obituary
My grandfather, David Catling, who has died aged 89, was a railway engineer who served as the senior manager on the Docklands Light Railway project in east London in the 1980s.
He had joined London Transport in 1948 as a graduate trainee and spent 37 years with the organisation, eventually serving as deputy general manager responsible for all engineering and systems on the DLR. David left London Transport in 1985 to become an independent consultant and was committed to the promotion of low-cost light rail and to improving access for people with impaired mobility.
