Lineside Photography

To promote lineside photography, the IWSR have produced a map showing the best vantage points for photographing our trains.

The map is available below or to download HERE

The places shown all have immediate public access and no additional permission is required from the railway, this does not permit you to be on or about the track. However, you are responsible for your own safety.

This initiative is to improve our trackside safety and in the future the issuing of trackside permits for photography will be restricted.
