UK Railways - Pensioner Railway Enthusiast Photographed Every Railway Station in Britain

Railway enthusiast pensioner David Brewer, 68, has recently achieved a personal ambition to photograph every railway station within the UK

Railway Enthusiast Clicked Every Station He Visited

Former railway worker and railway enthusiast, pensioner David Brewer, 68, has recently completed a personal ambition that has taken him to the four corners of mainland Britain to photograph every railway station in the UK.

His target was reached when he snapped the 15.52 train from Norwich to Liverpool Lime Street passing through the tiny station of Manea, Cambridgeshire, on the 9th May 2016, served by Abellio Greater Anglia.

Speaking about his eight-year hobby, Mr. Brewer said that Redcar British Steel was probably the most difficult to reach.  The station, used solely by the steel works employees, has only two services a day and special permission had to be obtained to photograph on the site.

So, is this the end of David Brewer's photographic travels?  Apparently not.  He is now photographing every station on the London Underground system.
