Hi ya and welcome to the ModelRailroadForums, wow a tall order your request is, not too much to go on. The only reference I can find where Gordon Eckersley and model railroads are associated is on this link to a site in the UK it is an annual report for the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway Society

Scroll down and under the heading of 2 to 5 year plan you will find "both the Society and NNR Plc has been driven by NNR director Gordon Eckersley"

The link to the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway Society site is http://www.mandgn.co.uk/ there are several areas that can be used for contacting the members

Hopefully it will be of some help and the best of luck with your search.
