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 any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos ot heritage railways like the one this page on the NVR.

Today East Coast, Virgin Trains and East Midland Trains 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!
