Welcome to British Rail through the 1970's and 80's.


These photos previously formed my large 'British Rail through the 1970's and 80's gallery' at Fotopic.
There are now well over 6000 images here, whilst mainly from the the 1970s and 80's in BR's classic rail blue era there are some images from earlier and much later too.


Original photographers are credited where known, uncredited photos are taken by myself.

Some of the captions I'm sure are wrong and will be / have been corrected, please let me know if you spot any errors or are able to identify any of the 'unknown' locations.

The extremely popular SR accident photos from 'Control we have a Problem' are also here, with some additional images. Again, if you spot any errors or omissions let me know.

The galleries of Classes 33, 47 and 73 are compendiums of photos from the regional galleries for ease of searching they should display in loco number order, as should the regional galleries.

I now have a new scanner that can deal with Medium Format negative and slides, these are now being added to the galleries they will make great prints as they are mainly scanned at 1500 x 1500. Copies of the photographs are available for sale through this website.

Additional pages are being added to the Motorail galleries as I catch up with my backlog, several new years of brochures have been added.

The gaps in the list of class 47's are slowly being filled in too.

 

New galleries: Buses around Brighton, 1950s railway images around the Brighton area and Canada 2016, a road trip through the Rockies which managed to capture a few trains. 


If you would like to start a gallery at Zenfolio please use my referal code 13U-HSH-3DM and save yourself some money.

If you have any comments or corrections to the captions please let me know, thank you.

I've been a rail enthusiast ever since I was born...... it's in the blood.
Early days trainspotting from home in Brighton and on holiday lead to me getting a student railcard and with camera in hand meant that I could travel much further afield.
With relatives in Nottingham I could also travel much further north, lots of trips out with my late Uncle Tony ( whose gallery of photos is also here) in my teens, then the start of a career with British Rail in 1978 have not diminished my interest.

Nearly 40 years later I've just taken early retirement from the rail industry. Hopefully that will mean not so many delays in getting the photos uploaded.
