Festipedia edit / delete

"Festipedia is dedicated to recording the history of the Festiniog Railway from the 19th Century to the present day. You will also find much detail on the Welsh Highland Railway." I hadn't realised quite how big the FR/WHR is now -- I need to find an excuse to visit at some point!

Andrew Briddon Locos Home edit / delete

A collection of (mostly) commercial diesel shunters, with detailed articles about their mechanical restoration. I now feel less worried about the space my instruments and computers take up -- at least I don't have 17 railway locomotives to find homes for!

Accident Investigations - NTSB - National Transportation Safety Board edit / delete

Rail accident investigations from the USA. An awful lot of these follow a common pattern: two trains collide head-on when operating on single track in "unsignalled territory". You would have thought that the cost of cleaning up a couple of these would outweight the cost of, like, installing some signalling. There's also not much in the way of detailed investigation of the root causes here.
