This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just onthe  trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was British Rail when I started taken photos.

This page and ten more are about the Carnforth open day held in 2008 and Carnforth Steamtown on the same site which is now closed

Today  names like East Coast, East Midland Trains GBRF and Virgin Trains are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not always mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More photos!
