David Cooke Collection

A large collection of photos of the SVRSevern Valley Railway, many from the 60s and 70s. Permission kindly given to use photos on the SVRSevern Valley Railway Wiki. David's Flickr account can be found here.

This list aims to include "interesting" photos, including locomotives arriving/departing or simply of a rare nature, special events on the SVRSevern Valley Railway, filming, and photographs of the very early SVRSevern Valley Railway movement. The list is likely to be trimmed down as it is decided which photos should be included on the wiki.

David has commented that in some cases dates have had to be estimated where they were not originally recorded, and so some dates may disagree with other sources of information.
