-Welcome to this collection of railway and travel photos, the vast majority of which will be steam related railway images from UK Heritage Railways and Mainline Steam.
-If you click on individual images you get a fairly small picture, if you select 'Dim the Lights' from the menu in the top left of the photo a larger image appears. Use of the Slideshow tool allows full-screen size pictures and is recommended. The Slideshow and music seems to work best via Google Chrome.
-The images are all low-res and copyright is mine.
-Traditional jazz music from the 1950s and 60s is attached to larger rail galleries, so if it not to your taste click on the solid speaker icon to kill it. The travel galleries, currently featuring West and Central Africa, Egypt, Nepal, India, Europe and Costa Rica have appropriate music from other sources added.
This site started out as railway-only photos, but with the continued demise of fotopic I am now adding travel photographs, both UK and oversea. I hope you will come back from time to time to check on what is being added.


About
A keen railway fan as a teenager in the 1950s, I have only resumed rail photography after retirement in 2005.
I am a refugee from Fotopic. This site contains rail photos from 2006 to the present, plus some Kodak Brownie shots from the 1950s. The collections are mainly standard gauge steam on Heritage railways and the main line, plus some narrow gauge railways and trams. With catastrophic events on Fotopic and on my first pc some earlier collections are only low-res, otherwise most are best viewed full-screen.
15.6.2011- With the continued demise of fotopic I am now gradually adding Travel photos which will be divided into Foreign and UK. I hope you will return from time to time to see additions.
