Months spent on the Chiltern

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -


MORE than just rail­way buffs will be in­ter­ested in a photo group’s lat­est project. Three Pho­toGroup mem­bers spent months cap­tur­ing three routes op­er­ated by Chiltern Rail­ways since 1996.

The re­sult­ing 68 pho­tos make up the lat­est al­bum for the group’s photo ar­chive of Chilterns life.

Web­site ed­i­tor Quiller Bar­rett said: “With High Speed 2 po­ten­tially chang­ing the face of the Chilterns area of out­stand­ing nat­u­ral beauty, it is im­por­tant to ac­knowl­edge the role Chiltern Rail­ways plays in a less vis­i­ble way through this beau­ti­ful land­scape.

“This al­bum is a pho­to­graphic record of Chiltern Rail­ways ser­vices through the area in 2014.”

The ar­chive com­prises over 6,800 photographs in nearly 200 lo­ca­tions in the Chilterns.

They record the spe­cial character, qual­i­ties and ameni­ties of the Chilterns for the ben­e­fit of later gen­er­a­tions.

Here are some ex­am­ples of the group’s work.
