Lineside photographic passes
article by: webmaster
If you are a photographer, aged 18 or over, you are welcome to
take photographs from the lineside provided you hold a current
annual lineside photography pass. The railway regrets that
for reasons of safety management we no longer issue day passes.
Annual lineside passes are valid from 1st February to
31st January of the following year and cost £50 for
non-members and £25 for members of the railway. Passes can be
applied for in advance of the start of the year and continually
throughout the year, however all passes will expire at the end of
the following January regardless of the time of purchase.
You will notice that it is cheaper to join the railway and buy a
members pass and membership also brings other benefits such as one
free journey per year, the railway's magazine and the ability to
volunteer is you so wish.

When you apply for your lineside photography pass you will
receive an instruction sheet detailing where you may or may not
photograph on the railway, a copy of the railway's PTS (Personal
Track Safety) booklet, a photography pass card and an orange high
visibility tabard (printed with the words GWSR Photographer and the
year for which it is valid). For more details on obtaining a
lineside pass please contact us or download a Lineside
Photographic Pass application form.
