Welcome to my new photo site. It's obvious that most of these are of railways in the UK with occasional trips abroad. Since 2006 I have been digital ( originally Canon EOS30D and latterly EOS 6D), and prior to that usiing 35 mm slide (Kodachrome) or Black and White FP4. It's clear that some of these older photos were taken before I realised that you actually needed light to take a photo, but some of the better ones will make it onto this site - the remainder will remain confined to a very dark drawer.

I will be adding recent photos and also uploading the older ones perhaps the two sets will meet in the middle.

All photos remain my copyright, please do not copy them without my permission

To start:  here is Wellingborough station signal box - straight out of the steam age.  Semaphore signal at the platform end, wooden midland design box (with no doubel galzing or plastic cladding as so many have these days) sacks of coal for the stove and a flat crossing at the paltform end, which passengers coudl use.  Note the illuminated sign signifying that the line is clear to cross.   ( I can imagine anyone connected with modern H&S tremblng at the thought of this).  I have no idea what the post and ladders imediately to the left of the box was for or used to be.
