Although our standards are unchanged, we have enlarged and updated our Privacy Policy to make everything much clearer.


New batches of photographs are being added weekly through to the beginning of 2018 - you can expect some special railwayana items to be released for Christmas day!

In late January the site will close for its annual stock-take and upgrade, so be sure to get your orders off in good time


We continue to add over a hundred photographs to the catalogue weekly. With a new scanner purchased early this year and a recent upgrade to our picture processing software, we are now able to offer pictures of much higher quality. With so many new pictures, we are withdrawing some of the older pictures for rescanning. Others still listed may will, if appropriate, be re-scanned when orders are made.


Having caught up with our backlog of new material, this coming weekend sees a reversion to smaller quantities of newly scanned pictures, including a range of non-London bus operators and electric multiple units. Of the new signalling pictures, a range of photographs of the little-known Brigg Siding signal box feature, as do some splendid views of the Southern Railway power box at Brighton.


The final large batch of images will be released this coming weekend, with a little bit of everything subject-wise. This brings us up to date with our backlog of images but scanning has continued and many more photographs await your delectation in due course.


Another large batch of images will be made available this weekend, eating into our backlog of scanned images. In particular, these will cover railway locomotives and London buses of the 1990s, but of course our usual selection of signal boxes from around the country will also be found. Amongst these are a splendid set of pictures of the famous Blea Moor signal box, rarely photographed owing to its remote location. We have also found some good quality outside shots of Stranraer Harbour signal box and signals to continue the trend of replacing existing less-than-perfect pictures on the site.


A large number of photographs will be added to the site on May 5th, mostly covering independent bus operators and the Docklands Light Railway.


We believe we have resolved the curious behaviour of Internet Explorer on the site, where it inserted three forward slashes in some URLs instead of the usual two.

If you experience any further issues do not hesitate to contact us.

The problem did not affect users of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Avant and Tor browsers.


Hundreds of bus and train photographs will be added to the site on 25th April. These will not necessarily appear on the Home Page as latest additions, so please explore the section of interest to you.

TIP - when you first visit a section, the default sort order is Oldest to Newest. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the >| symbol to visit the last page and see the newest items.


Today we have transferred the site to the new server at https://433shop.co.uk and all appears to be running smoothly.

Please let us know through the Contact page if you encounter any issues.
