The Brian Morrison Collection Gallery

Images from the Brian Morrison Collection. Brian is one of the UK's best known railway photographers who's personal photographic archive spans from 1951 to the current day. His first photograph was taken of a B1 Steam Locomotive on the turntable at London Liverpool Street having just purchased his first camera only minutes beforehand. From there Brian's archive of images has lead to thousands of images having been recorded for prosperity. We are very grateful to Brian for allowing his images to be displayed on Taunton Trains for the viewing pleasure of all those who visit Taunton Trains.
