The railway has an extensive library of photographs - please
contact the Press Office to let us know your requirements. In
addition, you are welcome to visit the railway to carry out your
own photography - please let us know when you would like to come
and what you would like to do - we will do our best to assist.
We can also assist if you need to carry out filming on the
railway. We happy to work with production companies looking for
period railway location work. We can offer station scenes, lineside
and on-train opportunities (including side corridor coaches),
freight trains, diesel and steam traction. Venues include a tunnel,
cuttings, embankments, bridges, attractive landscape, signals,
signal boxes and stations including the charming rural Winchcombe
station - typical of a Great Western Railway station suitable for
pre-war and post-war scenarios. Please contact the Press Office for
more information and assistance.
