Welcome to one of the largest Private Railway Archives in the UK creating a unique historical window on the age of steam.

Hello and welcome to the 'Steam Archive' a website dedicated to steam railway history. My name is John Hyde and for many years a lot of you will have seen me at Steam Exhibitions and Fairs displaying my extensive range of photographs.

The collection is estimated to contain over 10,000 unique images covering over 5 decades of Steam travel in the UK. The Photographs range from the 1930's to the end of steam in 1968 and include pictures of pregrouping, the 'Big Four', BR designed and Industrial locomotives.
