Railway Reflections


‘Railway Reflections’ is a new book by renowned Scottish railway photographer W.S. Sellar. This collection of photographs is accompanied by his personal memories and anecdotes gathered from his many years working for British Railways and travelling throughout Scotland as an enthusiast. He had the opportunity to gather unique shots as those on the Forth Bridge, Port Edgar and at Bonnington Crossing in Edinburgh, and his duties at many stations throughout Eastern Scotland brought him the chance to capture images on lines and branches not normally visited and photographed by enthusiasts.

‘Railway Reflections’ retails at £14.50 with a post and packaging charge of £3.50. The book will also be available from our Bo’ness shop on Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway operating dates.

What people say:

  • “This is an excellent book! Great pics and captions. Well worth the cost.”
  • “Fantastic book. Highly recommended.”
  • “I’ve just received Stuart’s book and thought that I’d compliment him and the SRPS for such a treasure. It is superb and I will enjoy it again and again.”


Stuart Sellar realised that the railway scene was about to change dramatically particularly with the elimination of steam traction. His railway career created opportunities that allowed him to record the passing of the steam locomotive and with 140 photographs this book includes a selection of images all taken in Scotland. Many personal memories and anecdotes are incorporated into the captions adding greatly to the quality of this book which will enhance any railway enthusiast’s library.

A member of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society almost since its very beginning, Stuart has been an active volunteer in many areas of the railway at both its original Falkirk base and at Bo’ness. His wish is that all the profits from the sale of the book go into the SRPS funds.
