Obsolete Railway Links

These are links to other railway sites that were listed on my links page, but no longer seem to be available. If your site is here, and you still maintain it, drop me a note and I will update the link and re-instate it to the links page.

Dates in parentheses indicate when page was last checked.


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!


Bruce Linn

Bruce Linn was CEO of Camtech in Adelaide, and we have a common friend in Chris Barter, who told Bruce of my railway interests. Bruce has established his own railway page, and would love a visit from you!

I am currently unable to access Bruce's railway pages. He does have a web page, but I found no trace of railways there.

Peter Howarth

Peter is a keen railway photographer, and has his own web page at, which now concentrates on Chinese railways.

Iron Horses Victoria

(20211003:120420) John Angelico sent me an email saying that his son Michael maintains a site called Iron Horses Victoria , and that he'd swap links with me. This is that!

Terry Menzies' Railway Page

Terry is a keen 38 class afficionado, and tells me that he is building a 5" gauge model of 3820, using some of my photos as a guide. He has a web page all about 3820. Glad to help out, Terry!

Preserved Steam Down Under

Ed Slee is working on cataloging all preserved steam locos in Australia, and has used several of my photos in his web site.

RailCo Steam Journeys

RailCo is a preservation group setup to restore and maintain the Ravenshoe to Tumoulin and Atherton to Herberton sections of the Atherton Tablelands line. They operate trips over the Ravenshoe section with two trips each weekend and also on public holidays.

UK Preserved Loco Database

I have found the UK Preserved Loco catalogue useful for checking on preserved UK locomotives.

Deborah Ward

(20211003) A correspondent, Deborah Ward, drew my attention to this interesting page on the History of the (US) Transcontinental Rail(way). You may also find it interesting.

Workshops Rail Museum

(20211003) Katrina Stark, the Marketing Officer for the workshops rail museum in Ipswich wrote saying:

The Workshops Rail Museum is a campus of the Queensland Museum located in Ipswich in South East Queensland. The Museum celebrates the story of rail in Queensland and attracts thousands of visitors a year including schools, families and intrastate, interstate and international tourists, many of whom access the Museum's website prior to visiting.

We are creating a new webpage on The Workshops Rail Museum's website called "Rail Links" which will list Queensland, Australian and International tourist railways, railway museums and railway associations (please visit to see this page).

We would like to seek your permission to list your organisation and include a direct link to your website.

Katrina, it is done!
