For any one who came to this page of my site looking for details of all  the main line steam in the UK  the best site to look in 2015  is http://www.uksteam.info/tours/trs15.htm
( You change the year on there site)
Most steam fans will know this already.   uksteam.info has got to be one of the best railway web sites in the uk. Times are put up when or if they get them. You even get the link to real time: times. Keep up the good work and well done.


This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
