The Society collects LNWR related photographs from a number
of sources as well as donatations. Each photograph is catalogued by - or under the supervision
of the Photgraphic Officer - with details of the source
and the subject matter to give a suitable caption. Lists are available, produced on computer
in pdf form. The databases on this site are derived from these lists but are in need of
updating, a task that will be completed soon.

It is our intention to scan all images and make any photograph available for purchase on our Zenfolio web site. So far approximately 16000 images have been scanned of which over 2000 are on Zenfolio.
That site is organised with all photos in Galleries, similar galleries are placed in a single Group. For instance the Passenger Locomotive Group contains over 30 Galleries, each Gallery having photographs of a single class of Locomotive. Nearly all of these Galleries contain over 30 photographs. We have tried to show all aspects of each locomotive through their lifetime as well as examples of each livery and a selection of photographs of each type of engine in service on a typical duty.
There are also Groups of Galleries for Goods Locomotives, Carriages, Wagons and an expanding Group for Locations including Stations.

Occasionally there can be a delay of a few days depending on our volunteers workload. However if you haven't heard anything for a week then please send a reminder - some of our volunteers claim to have senior moments. This is not a members only service but open to any prosective purchaser.
