Bishop Eric Treacy photo archive at NRM.

An archive of 12,000 pictures from one of "Britain's best railway photographers" is being digitised at The National Railway Museum.

Taken by Bishop Eric Treacy over about 40 years they are mostly in black and white and feature steam locomotives and the men who worked on them.

He was taking railway pictures at a station in Cumbria when he died in 1978.

The museum said Treacy's pictures were "of a way of life that's now entirely gone".
