Modern Britain

Railway Relics in 2013

by Peter Kessler, 20 January 2013

Leaf through some of the leftover odds-and-ends from the golden age of railways, spotted during railway walks or other trips around the country in 2013. These photos follow no particular order or geographical location. They are simply offered as they are discovered, along with a brief history or description.

If you would like to submit your own photos of disused railway lines, contact us. Return to the Railway Walks index.
