Welcome to Semaphores and Steam : An Archive of the British Steam Era. This site is dedicated mainly to steam railways during the pre 1968 era of steam operation in the UK, but will also involve the preservation of steam locomotives from 1968 to the present day.
These images are a priceless record of our railway heritage here in the UK, and, as such, they should not be hidden away but should instead be available for all to enjoy. They are available as downloads as well as prints to publishers, editors, societies, preservation groups, researchers etc as well as to private individuals. Whether you are buying or just viewing, please enjoy!
