Gallery The very best in InterCity 225 photography

One of the great strengths of the 225Group is the access it has to scenes of InterCity 225 trains over the last 32 years. We extend our thanks to everyone who has allowed us to publish their photographs here, and if you've got scenes you'd like to see please get in touch.

Location of the Week

Location of the Week was our regular photography competition that was up to you! Run on our popular Facebook group between January and June 2021, every week we shared a different location and invited the community to share their best captures from the lineside. The community selected their favourite photo from the entries, and the winners are all featured below.
