Welcome to Mark Beal TMD, the home 'depot' for my railway photographic collection. In time this site will display photographs spanning from the mid 1980's to the present day. Living in Milton Keynes, many shots are from the MK area but many other shots are on here from Penzance to Thurso.

My interest in the railways started around 1980 and along with living within sight of the WCML and having a father who worked in Wolverton Works, my fate was sealed.

I hope you enjoy looking at present day rail operations along with hopefully some distant happy memories of days long gone by. All images contained herein are copyrighted to myself. 

This site and its content are dedicated to my late father, Eric William Beal 1933 - 1991 and to my late mother, Ann Beal 1937 - 2015. Both forever in my thoughts.
