Jack Simmons, who has died aged 85, was emeritus professor of history at Leicester University and our finest railway historian. His original, dramatic and approachable work, St Pancras Station (1968), places the station, its railway and the men who built it - from magnates to navvies - at the centre of a spider's web that reached into every corner of Victorian life.

Jack Simmons, perhaps more than any other single scholar, is responsible for the advancement of the academic study of transport history. As well as being a co-founder of the Journal of Transport History, he wrote extensively on a variety of transport-related topics and was instrumental in developing the London Transport and the National Railway museums. Whilst his death in September 2000 at the age of 85 was a sad loss to the world of transport history, the achievements of his life, celebrated in this festschrift, remain a lasting legacy to succeeding generations of scholars in many fields.
