British Railways in the 1980's

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.

Please note that the site has operated at a loss over the past 7 years and therefore will be forced to close in March 2019 if running costs cannot be recuperated.
