Worked on the Highland, London Brighton & South Coast, North British and Caledonian railways as a locomotive engineer. Appointed Superintendent of the London & South Western Railway from 1895. He organised the removal of the locomotive, carriage and wagon works from Nine Elms in London to Eastleigh, Hampshire. He supported the L & SWR's Servants' Orphanage at Clapham and was one of the Trustees of the new orphanage that was opened in Oriental Road, Woking in 1909. His locomotive designs include the express 4-4-0 T9 class and the 0-4-4T M7 class which hauled the funeral trains into the cemetery. His final design was the 4-4-0 D15 class and the first of these was used to haul Drummond's funeral train from Waterloo into the cemetery in November 1912.
