The 5929 Transportation Website

  This site is Hosted by Nick Hanham, Retired Driver on the Swanage 

I have been involved with the Swanage Railway since January 1973 and taken many pictures of the railway in this time. In 2008 I started a photographic diary of my regular volunteer turns and these pictures are recorded in Swanage Railway Galleries.

I have had a passion for all types of transport throughout my life and now wish to share this interest, in photographic form, with all who are like-minded.

This web site has been developed since January 2010.
In addition to the Swanage Railway, all sorts of transport in the UK and Worldwide is now on offer since I began photography in 1953.

The site now contain many more non transport pictures.

Please also note that the sites are mainly made up of random pictures with no specific order or information, except dates and location. I hope the viewer will simply delve in and look at events as they took place and enjoy the transport and other photographs.

All the pictures in the Galleries have been taken by your Host & Webmaster Nick Hanham, with a few exceptions taken by your Host's Wife and late Mother. 
My photography is via public access.
Any pictures taken on private property were taken by permission.
I do not tolerate or condone trespass to obtain pictures.

Very Best Wishes To You
