About the Book
A 120 page photographic look at the railways of East Anglia in 2010. Comprising 270 pictures with extended captions, a chapter is devoted to each of the passenger and freight companies operating in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
Most of the major events of the year are captured, including 20 304 at work on Wherry line passenger service for NXEA in February, 57 004 ditto, the naming of three NXEA class 90 locomotives, London Midland 153 dmus on loan to NXEA, the reconnection of the North Norfolk Railway to the national network at Sheringham, the introduction of the new Freightliner Powerhaul livery to classes 86 and 90, the return of Oliver Cromwell and Tornado to the Great Eastern main line and so much more.
A photographer for 35 years, working may way up from Canon cameras to Mamiya 645 and ultimately Pentax 6x7 medium format I have now gone full circle and I am back to using Canon again. I currently utilise Canon digital SLR's with L series lenses. Until recently the secretary of the Phoenix Railway Photographic Circle which I have been a proud member of for over 20 years now, attempting to push the envelope of progressive railway photography. Now living in Colchester, Essex after 26 years in Northampton I have swapped the gentle rolling hills of Northamptonshire for Constable country. Travelling the world and my own country extensively, I love the dramatic scenery of the American West, the Swiss Alps, the Tuscan hills, the Scottish Highands and the west coast of Ireland. Springtime in the Tehachapi Mountains of California and winter in the Mojave desert are my nirvana though.
