The Shiny New Network Rail Picture Archive

Network Rail have a shiny new website with archived railway images on it. The images are really quite beautiful, from Brunel’s Bristol Temple Meads…

To the roof of Paddington Station…

The archivist, Vicky Stretch, has said there are almost five million records, of which only a small amount are currently online – but that it will grow. And there is an ‘ask the archivist’ section of the site which allows visitors to find out more information about images. The oldest records date back to the 1680s.
