Notes on Using This Section

  1. Click on the group numbers to view the photographs, which are in no particular order.
  2. The 'Search'option on the menu (to the left) will help if you are looking for a specific site, but we cannot guarantee that we have photographed it.
  3. Pages whose photographs share a common theme begin with an introductory paragraph.
  4. Currently groups 130 to 144 have been set up to accommodate new photographs which we have recived but not had time to publish.
  5. The links in grey will be enabled when they are needed. 

Submissions Policy. Members submit pictures for this section on the understanding that no trespass was involved. Photographs of buildings taken from the street or a public place, such as a public footpath or bridleway, are normally legal. There are usually clear signs where this is not the case, e.g. around certain types of military installation. Click here for detailed guidance from EPUK, Editorial Photographers UK and Ireland; most issues affecting those who photograph old railway structures are covered in the section on privacy.

Note that it is the club's policy to access private land only with permission from the owner.

Photo Gallery Structure. When this website was first created, most photographs were still being taken on film, and contributions to this section were rare. All that changed with the switch to cheaper digital photography, but by then the ad hoc structure of our Photo Gallery was already well established. Arguably, a better method of accessing our pictures is now needed, such as an alphabetical index of the places featured, but this will be a long time coming because it is a long and, frankly, dull job. There are usually more deserving projects to deal with, such as the online gazetteer.

If you are looking for photographs of a particular station or line, do remember (as mentioned above) that we have a site search engine, which should help you to find what you are looking for – provided it is here, of course.

Despite the growth of this section, it still contains only about 750 pictures, so it will be a while before our coverage is truly national. If you cannot find what you are looking for here, try the illustrated index of old stations maintained by Nick Catford of Subterranea Britannica (see our Links page), which is so extensive in its coverage that one wonders if the author has time to do anything else!
