Welcome to 80's Rail - the railway photographic archive site of Dennis Taylor.
Most of my photo's were taken between 1984 and 1989, recording the everyday operations of the British Rail system. If it had anything to do with the railway - motive power, rolling stock, depots or whatever - it was recorded on film. My collection consists of over 35,000 photographs (mainly black & white) and the aim is to upload as many different subjects as possible to share with rail enthusiasts, modellers & researchers.
If you would like to use any photograph commercially, please drop me an e-mail.

Capturing the everyday, the mundane and the commonplace whilst you could has given you (and us) an extraordinary and precious photo history of the 1980's railway scene.

Thank you.
Excellent images...a proud collection!
You have some absolutely fantastic photos on here, many of things that I have never seen before. I am really impressed by your efforts. All the photos on here are of surprisingly high quality considering they are not all that recent.

I am particularly interested in your London Underground photos. They are from very interesting angles and have captured the trains really well!

I am trying to capture something similar with my Zenfolio website but in the present day.
There are many wonderful photo sites out there but this has to be one of the best!

Such a wide range of topics but with attention to detail that make browsing a pleasure.

Wishing you all the best with this project.

I will most certainly be using this a reference point for my modelling and research endeavours. It has been well thought and clear to me you have put in loads of your time and effort.

Many thanks,
