Welcome to my collection of glass plate,medium format negatives & 35mm transparencies showing the glory days of steam in the UK. The collection started back in 2006 and the various images have been scanned with the Epson V700 photo scanner, then each image was worked in photo shop and finally run through the Nik Collection software to get the very best image quality. The images shown here are low res JPEG with watermark which I apologise for doing but people download images and post them on Facebook without giving the source where they took it from. Were possible I have given the original name of the photographer but sadly many are not known.In 2010 I purchased with copyright a box of original slides from Sarah Noakes of Redruth,Cornwall ,these were taken by her late father Brian.He travelled the UK and managed to blag his way into very difficult sheds capturing those wonderful unique shots. Also some excellent slides taken by the late Alan Chandler MBE a superb photographer who was using colour film during the late 1950's and 1960's. There are also many fine original glass plate negatives taken by Mr George John Drysdale(1873-1948) who lived at Seaforth,Liverpool see the LMS section. If you can supply any information to the images or maybe a name of the photographer then please email me at simonlathlane1967@gmail.com

 

The images are available to all publishers and magazine editors,please note down the slide/glass negative number and details, thank you. If you require a print from a particular image maybe an old spotting location or favourite loco then again please note down the slide number and details. I don't do these myself but it can be done locally for you.

 

Thank you for looking  and please bookmark the page as more images are uploaded regularly so do come back. To all those have got in touch supplying information on locations and corrections to captions my thanks to you.

 

Enjoy the collection......Simon
