Many of our members are enthusiastic photographers of railway based subjects. These subjects reflect the diversity of interests the members have in railway related matters and cover locomotives (modern and steam), rolling stock, narrow and standard gauge, home and abroad, liveries, industrial and private railways, locations and infrastructure, historical sites etc. The photographer has a variety of reasons for taking pictures including to support their public presentations, for publication in magazines and journals but more often simply for personal enjoyment and their own collections.

The Society positively encourages responsible railway photography in four ways:

  1. By providing a platform for members to show their photographs in support of a presentation at their twice monthly meetings.

  2. By organising an Annual Photographic Competition for members.  

  3. By encouraging members to display their photographs on this site.

  4. By promoting National Rail guidelines for Railway Enthusiasts.

The Society reserves the right not to publish material likely to have been obtained by trespass.
