The Rail Cameramen exhibition features images from 36 RCC members. It has material from past members, including W J V ‘Bill’ Anderson and Eric Treacy.

A number of associated events are being arranged by Locomotion to run concurrently with the photographic display.

The first of these will be on January 20 (5.30pm) – an open meeting – when Brian Stephenson will give an illustrated talk about the early railway photographers, using material from his extensive archive. The event will be held at Redworth Hall Hotel.

Exhibition sponsors include
The RM, Hitachi Rail Europe and the Bahamas Locomotive Society.

RCC had its origins in the prestigious Railway Photographic Society, and was formed by Maurice W Earley in 1922.
