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.
All of the 3000+ original photos are now uploaded with new photos being added all the time to the BR galleries.
Original photographers are credited where known, uncredited photos are taken by myself.

Some of the captions I'm sure are wrong and will be 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' also previously at Fotopic 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 added. Some of gaps in the list of class 47's are slowly being filled in.

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

Latest images include more class 47's to fill the remaining gaps and a selection of Cromptons on Brighton to the West Country/ S Wales workings.
A new gallery has been started for the Brighton line 150 celebrations in 1991.

A new gallery will be started for classic views of Brighton buses...these are currently in the new images gallery.

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.

What a great collection of photographs!.
Looking through these has brought back a lot great memoirs of being a young kid,train spotting and just generally hanging around the railways back in the eights.
I never had a camera till 88',so you`ve essentially taken the photo`s that i wish i could have back then!.

Thanks....
