David Heys Collection

Simon Lathlane’s interest in steam locomotives began at an early age. His very first recollection of going out to watch a main line run was March 1983 when the local press publicized the news that ‘Flying Scotsman’ would be stopping to take on water at Newark Northgate station during a steam run from Kings Cross to York. The wonderful sight and smell of a hard-working steam loco had got into his blood and he was well and truly hooked! Although Simon cannot relate to ‘real’ steam in the sense that he was born in 1967, he has more than made up for it since then. During the past few years he has managed to build up a fantastic collection of 35mm slides and medium format negatives – plus a superb collection of glass plate negatives.

Indeed not only is Simon a superb railway photographer in his own right with a website of quality digital photographs – ‘Steam Railway Photography by Simon Lathlane’ – he is one of the new generation of avid enthusiasts who rarely misses the chance to photograph steam on the main line and I am thrilled to include a Rail Cameraman page dedicated to his work.

Over the past ten years I’ve steadily put together a good sized collection of glass plate, medium format negatives & 35mm original slides. Purchased with copyright from Railwayana auctions, Newark Antiques & Collectors Fair and also from the Internet auction sites. Scanned with the Epson V700 photo scanner and then worked through PS and Nikon software to get the very best from each image. I was born in the final years of steam traction on BR network, if I had a time machine then I would love to be transported back to these glory days of real working steam. I have if known, included the name of the original photographer who took these images now part of my collection, sadly most are not known.
