"The preservation of our steam railway heritage is a passion that I share with many. Unlike many modern technologies, steam trains can assault all of our senses simultaneously: sight, sound, smell and taste. The sight of steam in the landscape has an undeniable beauty. In the pursuit of this passion I have had a series of pictorial stories published in a number of high quality journals.
In my panel I wanted to show a series of images that interpret this passion. I wanted to show why the passion is held through images of the magnificent engineering, both static and in motion in the landscape and I wanted to show the passion in the people involved; the volunteers working to keep this heritage alive and those that simply follow it. From the engineering yard through to front-of-house enthusiasts on station platforms and restored railway lines, I hope the scenes I have captured evoke this enduring fascination for the by-gone years of steam."
