  The 5 sites are Hosted by Nick Hanham, Driver on the Swanage 
  Railway

I have been involved with the Swanage Railway since 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 the Swanage Railway Diary and SR Diary 2, 3 & 4.

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.

The 5 sites 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 1955.

Most Galleries will have pictures added on a regular basis.

The sites now contain many more non transport pictures.

An occasional STOP PRESS E-mail will be sent out to regular viewers advising the latest additions to the site.

Please also note that the site is 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.

Log in on a regular basis and watch developments.

Very Best Wishes To You
