Railways – section home page

A southbound Voyager near York

A southbound Voyager near York.

This is the front, or index, page for the section of the site covering railways. The items on this page cover prototype full size, narrow gauge and miniature examples plus coverage of model making activity. My publishing, public speaking and photographic activity is also covered.

The sections are listed alphabetically in groups by topic area and the revised format of the page means the the former autobiographical intro’ page content has been moved, but not deleted, and can now be found more logically on the “My involvement with railways”  page.

Railways have received a bad press, the anorak jokes we’ve all heard regrettably having a grain of truth behind them; however, so too those about golf fanatics, football statisticians and beer bores. That said it is a multi-faceted interest and, hopefully, this site is neither too nerdy for the generalist, nor too light for the expert.
