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.

I can't imagine why I would ever need this, but it's sort of interesting that it exists.
