Phil Marsh has a huge image collection. He started photography in 1965 and over the last decade or so has collected images dating from the dawn of photography - 150 years ago. These are railway images but often contain great glimpses of social history from around the world. Subjects away from railways include, coast, landscape, wildlife, Harry Potter filming, the worlds top rock bands and people. He has scanned over 20,000 images over the last few years at high resolution and they have been featured on all the main TV channels.
He has a huge East West Rail, Wolverton Works and Royal Train archive available plus thousands of never before seen images from the last 750 days of mainline UK steam taken by his late brother Geoff Marsh commercially available.
