Welcome to the Website of Black Hat Railway Photographs. Here you can find photographs I have taken of trains in and around the North East with some other locations I have been to. Photographs of signifcant events can be seen in galleries marked by the year they happened. A lot of the pictures show different traction, everything from early steam replicas, to larger mainline locomotives and of trains running on the network today.

Feel free to look at all the galleries, Im sure there is something for everyone. Feedback is more than welcome on the site, which can be done on the homepage or on a photograph you like. The photographs on the site are available for sale and can be ordered by following the links on the page the photograph is shown on.

Enjoy...
