Welcome to ANISTR - We are all about TRAINS
ANISTR.COM is a growing online railway and train image archive with a library stock of several hundred thousand negatives and slides.
Our rail images are sourced from original negatives and slides, most of which are previously unpublished. They are available for sale either as traditional photos, using our very easy online purchasing facility, or as instant digital downloads for personal purchase and as stock photos for editorial and commercial uses.
We aim to provide a wide range of photos of steam, diesel and electric trains, and the railway scene, particularly from the British Railways era between 1948 and 1968, but also from earlier and later eras.
The development of this archive is an ongoing and long term business and new images are being added, usually on a daily basis. Please visit our galleries, via the thumbnail links below, to browse our collection or go to the ADVANCED SEARCH page to find particular subjects.
Our photograph prices are very competitive, starting at just £1.25 for a hand printed quality 6"x4" photograph, with no minimum order. Or you can download images for your own private use for just £0.49 each when you order three or more (with a coupon).You can buy photos or download images using your credit card (via Paypal) or by sending us a cheque to cover payment. It couldn't be easier!
Editors, publishers and organisations wishing to make editorial or commercial use of our images can buy images online for instant download, as with any well know picture agency. However you will find our fees are much lower, representing the niche market that we serve. By negotiation we are also happy to supply images for payment on publication against our invoice.
Our images have been widely used in books, magazines, catalogues, newspapers, displays and even Royal Mail postage stamps!
We also support the work of railway preservationists across the UK, in particular Southern Locomotives, GWR Saint Project based at the Great Western Society at Didcot, Swanage Railway, Isle of Wight Steam Railway, Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, Cambrian Heritage Railways, The LMS-Patriot Project and of course our nearest heritage railway,the Watercress Line
ANISTR (it's just an anagram of trains if you are puzzled!) was formed by the amalgamation of three earlier successful railway photograph web archives Southern-Images.co.uk, RAILWAYIMAGESUK.COM and PLATFORM14.COM.
