5929 Transportation Website

This site is Hosted by Nick Hanham, Retired Driver on the Swanage
Railway
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 Albums.
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 contains 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 Albums 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 with permission.
I do not tolerate or condone trespass to obtain pictures.

SWANAGE RAILWAY ON THE FOOTPLATE
During my time as a Cleaner, Fireman and Driver I kept a record of the miles covered from 1978 to 2018 as follows:
39,443 miles.
This started with a round trip of 200 yards increasing to a 12 mile round trip over the years.
I was also passed out to drive on the extension from Norden to Bridge 2, just a short distance from the main Waterloo Weymouth line at Worgret Junction, Wareham.
WHAT A PRIVILEDGE
