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!

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!

ATOC - Routeing Guide edit / delete

The book that tells you what "ANY PERMITTED" means on a National Rail ticket. It's remarkably complicated, and produces some interesting results (e.g. it claims I'd be able to travel from Dundee to London via Aberdeen, although I suspect I'd get some odd looks if I actually tried that).
