This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on 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, and signal boxes like this page, any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today East Coast, Virgin Trains and GBRf are just some of the names on the trains.  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!
