Railway Links

These are links to other railway sites who have used my photos, or refer to them in one way or another. If you want to swap links, please just drop me an email with your link, and what it is that you have linked to, and I'll add it to this page.

From time to time I check these links, and remove them to the obsolete links page if the site is not accessible. Drop me a line if your site moves, and I'll keep the list up-to-date. Links with a date-time stamp indicate when the page was last checked.

I am currently restructuring these pages to be continent-based, which might help you in searching for what you want. Within continents, things are arranged alphabetically.


World Railways

David Fraser (a cartographer friend) sent me this link to a map of the railways around the world.

Extreme Steam

My thanks to Neil Leister for pointing out this interesting page on all sorts of unusual steam locomotives. Although I do have to say, having worked on garratt 6029 in Canberra to the point of restoring it to running condition, I don't see garratts as all that unusual!

America - South

Revista Ferroviaria

(20161228) The Brazilian connection. Huge collection of links. If you speak Portuguese. But it is nice to have a link to something South American at last!


Nothing as yet

One of my correspondents, Frank Mitchell, sent me a link to a Chinese Steam photo gallery . This has some nice photos of steam in snow!

(20161204) Years ago, I corresponded with some folks at Steam Ranger, who arranged for reciprocal links between this site and theirs. I think they have dropped their links to my pages, but I still maintain one to their pages.


(20161205) Trainworks used to be known as the NSW Rail Transport Museum, aka RTM.

(20161204) Matthew Geier's RTM page This page is rather out of date, and I am not sure if it is still maintained.


Now come on, you didn't really expect anything in here, did you? Well, I suppose the Railway at the End of the World might almost qualify, but it is really in South America, q.v.
