Owner and Founder - Mike Belham
In 1996 I formed my own IT Consultancy which gave me more flexibility to pursue my sound and lighting interests. While working as an IT consultant I was training Church PA Teams and in 2008 had the opportunity to work as technical director in a community production of Joseph.
From 2009 continuing through to 2020 my Sound and Lighting Company has helped Churches, Schools and village halls with permanent installations and events.
I have been an active volunteer on a number of preserved railways since the 1980's, my positions have included:
- Station Porter
- Ticket Office
- Locomotive Crew
- Commercial Director
Since childhood I have had a keen interest and involvement with model railways.
- My own personal OO gauge layouts
- Mamod Live Steam
- Chief electrical engineer for a 45' O Gauge exhibition layout in the 1990's
- Installation of DCC and repair of model locomotives
- My current projects include the building a 4" scale live steam traction engine from a machined kit, I have a YouTube channel documenting the build and showcasing other steam related videos
