About me

Railway Photographer

Railway photography has been a passion of mine for many years. I enjoy taking photographs of all types of trains as a hobby but my main interest is taking steam trains photos that most railway enthusiast seem to love.

Thank you for visiting Railway Photography, I hope that you enjoy browsing the website, which includes a gallery and railway blog. My name is Colin Wallace and I am a very keen railway photographer.


I have now been photographing trains for nearly 4 decades. I have had the pleasure of capturing some of the most iconic locomotives ever seen in the UK. For example, the ‘Flying Scotsman’ to the ‘Tornado’ and the Class 52 Western to the Class 50. I’ve caught them as they move majestically along the mainline or heritage railways the country has to offer.

Nowadays, I spend a lot of time on two of the picturesque heritage railways here in Devon. The South Devon Railway and the Dartmouth Steam Railway.

Although my initial love of diesel locomotives has given way to the magnificence of steam locos. I still pride myself on capturing these incredible machines in their true environment, rolling along the tracks of this magnificent country.


Over the years I have had quite a few of my photographs published in a number of nationwide railway magazines and local newspapers. I have also had three photos of mine published on the front cover of magazines!
