Welcome to a railway themed photographic sales & professional general photographic training website. 


Bespoke photography training days can be arranged tailored to your requirements using Phil Marsh's 50 years plus photography experience based at Chinnor station and/or at Princes Risborough North signalbox overlooking the Chiltern main line and Princes Risborough station.

media and on-line by the Department for Transport and the East West Rail Consortium. He is also a contracted photographer to the Solent Picture agency and Caters image agency. 2020 has been a record year with countless (but probably over 250 images published). Gemini Rail are the latest client while SouthEastern Trains used these archives for the 80th anniversary of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation trains.  


Behind the scenes railway images since 1862 are commercially available in high res digital files or as prints. They also appear appear most months in the following: Today's Railways UK, Rail Infrastructure Magazine, Railway Magazine, Railnews, Heritage Railway, Rail Express, Railway Herald and from time to time in Rail and Steam Railway. Trinity Mirror used the archives to support their Steam Train Britain TV series.


Specialist subects are The Royal Train, East West Rail and HS2 projects and Wolverton Works. A large library from the 1830s is available detailing the construction & operation of the London & Birmingham Railway and the construction of the London underground from the1860s.

Working on the railways since 1973 and a preserved railway volunteer since 1987, has enabled a huge archive of behind the scenes pictures to be assembled. Here is a selection from Bletchley Flyover worksite, a Eurostar at Darlington on test in 1996, a Covid protected Guard at Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway. Harry Potter filming at Arisaig, the last of the HSTs at Old Oak Common and a 1965 coal train are just some of over 250,000 archive images available commercially.
