Victorian "Railway Mania" changed Britain forever as an "iron road," complete with tunnels, bridges, viaducts, and stations, marched inexorably across the country. Railway structures began to dominate the landscape. A number of which took hold in the peoples imagination reaching iconic status as pleasing to the eye or a testament to mans engineering brilliance. Inevitably over time some of these became redundant and decisions taken to close and demolish sparked public protest. Scotland’s Railway Icons will not only celebrate the surviving Icons north of the border but also include those, which were repurposed, abandoned, or bulldozed, showcasing all that Eastern Scotland has to offer.
Chris Hogg was the Curator of Film Photography and Sound at the National Railway Museum for 35 years. His remit was to document with still and moving images the railways of the United Kingdom. Lynn Patrick was the photographer at the National Railway Museum for more than 25 years documenting the railways of the UK and Europe prior to her going freelance in 2012.
