He was hired by Rolls-Royce [9] and briefly worked at a car factory in Portsmouth, but resigned in November 2021 following his social media growth.

Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the railway as the world's most famous trainspotter and TikTok sensation Francis Bourgeois, takes you on an epic journey and shows you the joy of following your own passions.The book was launched in October, alongside his new Channel 4 digital series Trainspotting with Francis Bourgeois. It’s more than that though; it’s a manifesto for throwing off the shackles of cool disdain and just doing what feels right.

It's more important to be true to your passions than what anybody else thinks according to Francis and I agree strongly with this.

Given the perception amongst his school peers that trainspotting was uncool, he explained that his pseudonym allowed him to "feel a bit more protected" when making videos. He likens the sound of dance music to the industrial sounds produced by locomotives and diesel engines. 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.This year, we’re celebrating 30 years of Percy Pig and I want to make sure it’s a great day for him!

In The Trainspotter's Notebook, Francis shares his greatest trainspotting adventures and takes you with him across the fields and footbridges of Britain, passing through historic terminals and backwater stations in pursuit of tones, thrash and locomotive perfection. Henry Vines, editorial director, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to The Trainspotter’s Notebook from Millie Lean at YMU. It felt amazing to be able to share my passion with my friends for my birthday, which was on the 9th July" – via Instagram. As a Rail enthusiast, yeah i admit Francis stuff isn't something i would watch and i think the hobby already has good ambassadors.That yellow train, I now know why people chase it round the area though I've always laughed when I post an instant shot and read people say they're setting off to see it. In fact, these days even rail enthusiasts will normally shy away from using this term for themselves. Lean added: “Francis is a born storyteller, which is abundantly clear in his euphoric, uplifting content that has captured the imagination of millions. When he started on TikTok, his gently eccentric performance made me wonder if this was a cleverly constructed comical portrail of a 'train spotter' minus the taped together health specs. In most of his trainspotting videos, Bourgeois will often be seen wearing vintage rail garb and what he describes as a "blend between railway memorabilia and streetwear.

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.Winner of the Book of the Year – AudioBook: Fiction Award Cressida Cowell collects her Nibbie from Francis Bourgeois live on stage! On 19 March 2022, he was invited to the "Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear" exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, in partnership with Gucci. Of course his name is not Francis which does not help him appear 'authentic' - why not just use his real name? I'm not into to trains so I used this book to zone out to when walking the dogs during the train information parts.
