Months spent on the Chiltern
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.
