What's on these pages?
These pages are dedicated to one of my center of interest: railways
(or "railroads" for our friends from across the Atlantic) and
model railways. Unlike most mainstream railfans, my preference
goes to "on the fringe" railways: mostly disused, abandoned, long forgotten
railways (especially underground) and in railway experiments such
as pneumatic railways, cable hauled tramways, early
systems of electric traction, etc.
Like many railfans, I am also a railway modeller with a special
interest in narrow gauge railways in On3, On30, On18, Sn3, HOn3, Nn3 and HOe scales.
Information contained in these pages are coming from a variety
of sources including books and videos from my personal library, as
