Welcome to my photostream in it's early days. You may have found it by me adding your pictures to my favourites or by me adding you as a contact.

Over time I will add captions and would welcome further information or corrections. Anyone who wishes to add my photos to their favourites is welcome.

As will be seen my primary interest is railways, particularly BR locomotives and stock. Classic cars and commercial vehicles are also of interest.

A few words about me. I was born in 1971 in Folkestone, Kent, and still live there today. I have been employed by the railways since 6th February 1989.

Since March 2012 I have deleted the images previously shown on this photostream and have reinstated them marked with my copyright. This is in a position where hopefully it will not detract from the content of the image, normally in a corner. All photos added in future will be marked with my copyright.

Cameras used -
Since June 2011 - Fuji Finepix Z70.
Dec 2003 - June 2011 Fuji Finepix A405
July 1989 - Nov 2003 Pentax ME Super
Prior to July 1989 Compact 35mm camera


Recently a number of people have added me to their contacts. I will shortly look at their photostreams and profiles and most likely add them to mine in return. Please be aware that if you add me as a contact or mark anything of mine as a favourite and I find an empty photostream or "has nothing available to you", then you will not be added and may be blocked. Naturally this will not apply to the vast majority who run their photostreams very well.


I note that in spite of the above paragraph, there are still people who disregard it and continue to favourite my pictures. Well you know, with the way that flickr has gone over the last month or so, I just couldn't care less any more!


Many thanks to all those who particularly over the past few months have taken my viewing figures up to 16000. To those who have added me as a contact, many thanks and if I have not already done so, will add you in due course.


Happy New Year to all. Congratulations to the person who has just got himself blocked. 4 years on flickr with no photos and 12 favourites. Pathetic!.


A slightly belated Happy New Year to all who find themselves here. After taking a sabattical, I have slowly started to add more material. Initially this is photographs taken prior to mid 1989 with a cheap 35mm compact camera and the results are in my opinion worse than my digital work. There is however some material that I think is worth sharing. Thanks to those who continue to view and 'favourite', comments are also welcomed.
