Testing - National Railway Museum

A selection of photography commissioned by the National Railway Museum for the Testing exhibition. The exhibit explored experimentation, prototyping, and testing in the rail industry.

For this I photographed the HYPED team at the University of Edinburgh who are working on the UK’s first hyperloop pod. The Hitachi’s test facility in Newton Aycliffe. Over in Leighton Buzzard I visited the London Crossrail/ Elizabeth line test site as well as capturing Graham who worked on the project at Grimshaw Architects. The final location was the University of Birmingham’s Centre for Railway Research (based in Derby), which tests the aerodynamic properties of new trains.
