Mainline Steam Photographs

If you have an interest in taking mainline steam train photographs and would like to know if there are any tours in your area then checkout Railway Herald or UK Steam for more information.

Every year Colin is lucky enough to photograph some great steam train tours that come into or pass through Devon. The main tours that visit Devon are ‘The Royal Duchy’ that goes down to Par in Cornwall and ‘The Torbay Express’ that visits the Dartmouth Steam Railway. There are occasionally other tours too.

Steam train photography is very popular all over the country, where ever Colin goes with his camera there are always other photographers there too. At some of the most popular locations, it is advised that you get there at least an hour before the tour is due to arrive as it gets rather packed and you may not be able to stand in the spot you wanted.

Below you will see collection of mainline steam train photographs that Colin has taken in Devon.
