Phil Marsh joined the railways in 1973 and worked full-time for over 30 years and in 2003, set up his own company offering mainly railway-based consultancy.


This covers operations, commercial bidding, media and PR activities. He was on the staff of The Railway Magazine for 5 years in which time it won 'magazine of the year' and became, and still is, the largest selling railway title in Britain. He enjoyed the title of Chief Correspondent for around a decade and still is a contributor.


He is a member of the editorial team of Railnews, the leading rail industry paper, and Railway Herald while also writing regularly for another 5 publications.


He edited for five years and during this media career (including working the picture desk at IPC), which spans over 20 years has had litererally thousands of images published both in print and on-line plus numerous articles.


Specialist subjects are East West Rail, Wolverton Works/The Royal Train, Island Line and this year in particular, Bletchley Flyover deconstruction.

Half a century of photography! Phil Marsh has been taking photographs since 1965 - mainly of railways but also of wildlife, landscapes and the coast.

The view from the Princes Risborough North Signalbox and its black rabbit and a horse on the iron road at the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway. A selection of my huge archive of images taken from the driving cab as well as minor mishaps as this one from 1968 by Geoff Marsh and James May on Rocket in Hyde Park.
