About Me

Retired Medical Scientist, keen photographer for 64 years. Taken photographs, primarily of scenery and railways, in Britain and abroad, in colour since 1953 (slides, prints since 1980), digital since 2003). Lifelong Railway Enthusiast, in recent years concentrating on Closed Stations -- as well as Open ones. Several thousand photographs to offer, including over 1,000 b/w
of Railway stations/remains (and 3,000+ of locomotive and train scenes) taken 1946-66); also over 5,000 more recent colour photographs, mainly of Stations. Scenery and other non-railway photographs cover the same 65 year period in comparable numbers. Keen to fill up grid gaps and to be able to discuss content.
