Thank you for visiting Photo Rail.

Photo Rail is a new on-line photographic archive primarily covering the Diesel and Electric era which allows you to purchase both digital downloads and the more traditional prints. If you see anything you like please feel free to place an order.

The archive has been built up from our own photographic jaunts over the last 25 years plus additional material bought / acquired from various sources. We are always on the look out for additional material. Our aim is to keep the archive expanding all the time.


Enthusiasts may search, browse and purchase from our archive using the built in secure on-line payment facility. Just add items to your shopping basket then click check-out when you are ready to buy. You can pay using PayPal as well as most Credit Cards.

Postage for all print orders is fixed at £2.30 regardless of the quantity of prints that you order.

If you are not comfortable buying on-line then please get in touch using the contact page and we'll send you an order form that can be returned to us by post.
