We hate broken links so if we have any
we would be very grateful if someone would tell
us (we do check them ourselves as well).
If your site is here, please tell

Railway Information, offers a journey calculator
but not (sadly) an online timetable. Give your start and finish stations,
date of travel and time of travel, and the system will tell you your
train times and how many changes you must make (but not where you change,
how much the journey will cost or how to get the cheapest deal). There
is a lot more to this site than just a journey calculator though, with
very short articles (some scarcely more than two sentences) and links
to other sites of interest. This site offers a choice of "first class"
service (with frames, Flash and frills) and "Standard-class" service
(no frames, Flash or frills). I opted for the "standard-class" but I
still found parts of it were very slow and overloaded with graphics.
Narrow Gauge Railways has information,
pictures and loco specifications for most, if not all, of the Swiss
narrow-gauge railways. Some of these are running main-line express
services, and providing an important link between towns all winter
when road passes are frequently blocked. The Swiss do not confine
their narrow gauge lines to "tourist" lines. Some of the more interesting
material, for example what looks like histories of the lines, is in
German but a lot of the site has been translated into English.
Somewhere for exploration is the LNER
webring, a collection of sites dedicated
to all things connected with the London and North-Eastern Railway
(like A4 locomotives).
Webrings are a useful way to find things of interest
but there are a lot of sites in the European
Railway Webring (342 sites so far) which
makes it a lot to search through if you are only interested in one
country. Luckily, Webring now provides a search facility.
