Welcome to the updated Trainspots website. Every page now has a Google map embedded so you can get a better idea of where you are going. In addition, there is a growing collection of geotagged images on this map to give you a wider perspective.
Every railway photographer has their favourite haunts, places they return to time and time again to get the shots of passing trains.
But what do you do when you want to go somewhere new?
That is where we can help.
For 10 years Trainspots has been a continually expanding archive of railway photographic locations from up and down the United Kingdom.
With information on how to get there, what the area is like, and perhaps even where the nearest chip shop is!
Trainspots covers both current running lines, high speed route, light and preserved railways and any location that is of interest.
To you it might just be the usual dull spot down the road, but to someone who lives 200miles away it is a brand new location with lots of new interesting things to see!!!!!
Also do not be put off by the fact that the location is a sparsely used freight line or somewhere only multiple units go. Everyone has different interests and likes, plus you never know when something special might turn up on that bit of line.Read More
Enjoy the site and happy fotting.
