May 2010. Stephanie died peacefully on 19th April after a short stay in hospital. She had been suffering from acute cervical cancer. Fred will continue to run the business to the best of his ability. The web site is slowly getting under control again as he tries to take over some of Stephanie's responsibilities, and learns some of the mysteries of Dreamweaver.

Model Railway and Transport Links

We hate broken links so if we have any we would be very grateful if someone would tell us (we do check them ourselves as well).

If your site is here, please tell us if you move.

If you have a site which may be of interest to our visitors, please tell us about it.

British Railway Information, offers a journey calculator but not (sadly) an online timetable. Give your start and finish stations, date of travel and time of travel, and the system will tell you your train times and how many changes you must make (but not where you change, how much the journey will cost or how to get the cheapest deal). There is a lot more to this site than just a journey calculator though, with very short articles (some scarcely more than two sentences) and links to other sites of interest. This site offers a choice of "first class" service (with frames, Flash and frills) and "Standard-class" service (no frames, Flash or frills). I opted for the "standard-class" but I still found parts of it were very slow and overloaded with graphics. Interesting though.

Swiss Narrow Gauge Railways has information, pictures and loco specifications for most, if not all, of the Swiss narrow-gauge railways. Some of these are running main-line express services, and providing an important link between towns all winter when road passes are frequently blocked. The Swiss do not confine their narrow gauge lines to "tourist" lines. Some of the more interesting material, for example what looks like histories of the lines, is in German but a lot of the site has been translated into English.

Somewhere for exploration is the LNER webring, a collection of sites dedicated to all things connected with the London and North-Eastern Railway (like A4 locomotives).

Webrings are a useful way to find things of interest but there are a lot of sites in the European Railway Webring (342 sites so far) which makes it a lot to search through if you are only interested in one country. Luckily, Webring now provides a search facility.
