The aim of these pages is to show pictures and, video clips from the preserved, and other railways I have visited. I have not filled the pages full of technical facts and figures or full histories of engines or anything else.  But what I have tried to do is include links to follow where this information can be found.  The brief site description is the left of the two column and clicking on the graphic will take you to the various preserved, and other railway video clips and still photo's.  The links at the bottom of the pages are to some railway web rings. 
NB  Since the launch of Internet Explorer 7 the video sound on all the video clips on the page viewed starts automatically.  To stop this, click the 'play' and then the 'stop' button on every video clip on the page.  The video's can then be played normally.  Firefox browser users will not experience this difficulty.

These pages show various items which may interest you. It includes:-Statesman West Highland 'Land Cruiser Train' at Crianlarich on 19th Feb 2010. 70013 Oliver Cromwell on an SRPS Railtour. The 'Green Express' at Cupar. The first B&KR train at Manuel. Another Barrow Hill event, Rail Power 2008, was a very attractive prospect, and resulted in a great day out.
