Pictures of departmental and engineers' trains, a wide range including:
An engineers' train (such as the EWS 66 hauled Hinksey Yard-Bescot Yard Civil Engineers Sidings (6M28) which I see locally) can look nondescript - it helps if you can identify the working in the photo description.
Pictures of this relatively small class.

This is a collection of photographs, videos and ephemera of the Southern Railway and its constituent companies. The aim is to record locomotives, rolling stock, buildings and equipment built (or designed) in the prenationalisation period. Photos of locos and rolling stock still in use in the British Railways period and subsequently in heritage railway use are very welcome. Please place rolling stock built in the British Railways period and in the current Southern Railway era with groups for tho…
The group aims to collect material - photos, drawings, maps, ephemera related to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. As the lines on which this railway ran virtually disappeared in the 1960s and very few diesels were ever seen on it, photos from all periods will be welcome, even ones of 7Fs strangely painted in Prussian Blue.
The group's website address is www.ipernity.com/group/sdjr
This group aims to collect photographs of the LNER and its constituent companies, their locomotives, rolling stock, buildings and other items of interest. The company existed from 1923, when it was formed by the grouping together of smaller railway companies on the eastern side of England and Scotland, until 1948, when all the mainline railways in the UK were nationalised. Photos of LNER locos and stock still running after nationalisation will be welcomed, but please place photos of later stock…
This is a group to collect photographs of the Great Western Railway, its locomotives, rolling stock, stations and other items of interest. The GWR was one of four large railway companies, formed by grouping together smaller railway companies from across England, Scotland and Wales, in 1923. The GWR was the only company pre-grouping company that retained its name, absorbing mainly small companies. It operated across south-west England, Wales and parts of the Midlands, with its London terminus at…

A place to exhibit any BR images taken prior to 1997 and not necessarily your own images as they could be from another family member. However, please ensure that you own the copyright of any image posted to this group.
Limiting submissions to ones own photographs would essentially restrict the group to individuals who are long in the tooth, when there are so many interesting views out there and which may have been handed down the generations.
However, please give credit to the original photogr…
Photos celebrating the rural landscape of England.
Pictures of all Austin cars.
Pictures of all Morris cars.
To show the UK's wild flowers at their best. Not cultivated varieties please, just truly wild growing flowers. For example a flowering weed in your garden would be fine, because it's naturally occurring even in a place of cultivation.
If you want to post something you can't identify, that's okay but try please to name your flower if at all possible, add tags as appropriate if you can be bothered.
To showcase quality images from the many Heritage Railways in the UK. Preferably showing a locomotive or an item of rolling stock, however good images of preserved railway buildings also appreciated here.
Hopefully this group will also be the place to find preserved locomotives working the main line.
Please accept the limit of four posts per day so that a wide variety of individual submissions can be seen. Also please to add a few details and if possible, geo-tag with the location.
Show your best Military Aviation photos
Fire engines, big or small anywhere in the world.
This group is for car enthusiasts to post images of Old Cars Spotted Out & About as opposed to those seen at car shows, runs or rallies etc.
Given how many different interpretations there are of what is and isn't a classic car, I'm using the phrase old cars and for the sake of this group defining it as anything built before the year 2000.
So, come on folks let's see what you've spotted.
Hastings is a town and borough in the local government county of East Sussex, within historic Sussex, on the south coast of England.
In historical terms, Hastings can claim fame through its connection with the Norman conquest of England; and also because it became one of the medieval Cinque Ports. Hastings was, for centuries, an important fishing port; although nowadays much reduced, it still has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in England. All photos from Hastings and St Leonards are wel…
To capture the last resting place of men and women who fought and died across the world. Single headstones and whole cemetery photos welcome from across the world regardless of nationality or conflict, recent or old. Memorials that remember those who died are also welcome both large or small.
