Welcome to Mainline South. Over time I intend to upload my favourite railway photographs to this gallery. My main interest is European railways, because they still retain a lot of the features lost from the English railway scene. When was the last time you saw a loco released from the blocks at Euston? I grew up in London in the 80s and the scenes long gone from the London terminii are what I enjoy tracking down in Europe.
