World Railways Photograph Catalogue - Restoration & Archiving Trust
These pages are being set up to entertain & inform the world at large and provide a platform upon which to display the work of many photographers both alive & deceased in a manner that makes it widely accessible at little or no cost to those who wish to study it. There are of course costs involved in running this site & providing the digital equipment to continue the work. We hope that you enjoy looking at the images contained herein and would simply ask that anyone who feels sufficiently moved by what they see, consider making a small donation to help with the ongoing work, by clicking on the button below.

Countries Index

Photographs from the following countries are included in the Trust's collection, In those cases where the background is maroon, clicking on the country's name will take you to an index for pictures in that country. Some of the thumbnail pages within these galleries may well become quite large as time progresses. The country names reflect the political realities around the time that the photographs were taken and in some cases therefore do not reflect current names or boundaries
Please remember that the Trust holds the copyright of all the photographs on this site and whilst you are free to use these for personal use no commercial must be made of these without the prior written consent of the Trust, which equally applies to republishing them in any form. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional information or corrections regarding the captions to any of these photographs.The intention is to provide translations of the captions into the native language of the country concerned for some of the photo galleries. The availability of any such translations will be indicated by the national flag on the thumbnail page.
