Modern Britain

Railway Relics in 2014

by Peter Kessler, 23 July 2014. Updated 9 September 2018

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 2014. These photos follow no particular order or geographical location. They are simply offered as they are discovered, along with a brief history or description.

Additional information by Stephanie R Le Baigue.

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