Here Endeth the Posession

Well, it was a Sunday…..

56090 awaits permission to exit the possession at Marshbrook, and progress to Craven Arms, where it will run around and work back to Marshbrook to form 6C20, the 8.30 back to Crewe Basford Hall. 16.5.21.

Not often you get the opportunity to stand on the level crossing and photograph a train this close with the barriers still up. The structure on the right is Marshbrook signal box.

2021 represents a significant milestone in the history of the Phoenix Railway-Photographic Circle with the celebration of our 50th anniversary by publishing a book to showcase some of the members work, past and present, from 1971 to the present day.

The book contains 14 chapters and 144 pages of photographs depicting the work of over 50 accomplished railway photographers with many differing styles and approaches. It takes an alternative view on photographing the railway scene over the past 50 years.

The book, called 50 Years of Phoenix will be published on 14th May 2021 with pre-orders now being taken – click on this link to order your copy:
