A renowned and much sought after railway historian, Dunc was an author and speaker on the days of steam on the railways, particularly Canadian Pacific where he worked as a locomotive fireman until 1957. He wrote two books for the Society (Snow Plow Extra and When Steam and Steel Get in Your Blood) and for many years wrote a monthly column, "Tidbits", for the Society's magazine, Branchline. Also a retired air traffic controller, Dunc personified everything transportation. When not restoring and running steam locomotives at the Canada Science and Technology Museum, Duncan spent many hours cruising down the Rideau Canal system on his pride and joy, the "Channel Island," a 36-foot cruiser he built himself.
