These are links to other railway sites who have used my photos, or refer to them in one way or another. If you want to swap links, please just drop me an email with your link, and what it is that you have linked to, and I'll add it to this page.
From time to time I check these links, and remove them to the obsolete links page if the site is not accessible. Drop me a line if your site moves, and I'll keep the list up-to-date. Links with a date-time stamp indicate when the page was last checked.
I am currently restructuring these pages to be continent-based, which might help you in searching for what you want. Within continents, things are arranged alphabetically.

Grace Coleman of the New Hampshire STEM Club sent me an email outlining how children in the club found my train links page (this page) useful, and offered this link to add to this list. It is US-oriented, but much of the information has wider application. You may find it useful, too.
A correspondent, Ryan Carrigan, has posted some interesting
comments on the effect that railways had on the development of
North America, particularly the USA. Check out
Transcontinental Railroad Relocation
The Brazilian connection.
Huge collection of links. If you speak Portuguese. But it is
nice to have a link to something South American at last!
The Southern Fuegian Railway aka "The Train at the End of the World" is a picturesque railway line built to service a penal colony. Since the end of the Falkland War in 1982, the line has been rebuilt as a tourist railway, and I was fortunate to be able to travel on this line in 2015. If you ever get the chance to visit this line, please do so - you will not regret it!
One of my correspondents, Frank Mitchell, sent me a link to a

(20161204) Years ago, I corresponded with some folks at Steam Ranger, who arranged for reciprocal links between this site and theirs. I think they have dropped their links to my pages, but I still maintain one to their pages.
(20161205) Trainworks used to be known as the NSW Rail Transport Museum, aka RTM.
(20161204) Matthew Geier's RTM page This page is rather out of date, and I am not sure if it is still maintained.
Now come on, you didn't really expect anything in here, did you? Well, I suppose the Railway at the End of the World might almost qualify, but it is really in South America , q.v.

He adds: "One of my images has been used by the Rail Workshops Museum in the Great Railway Journeys of Australia exhibition, opened yesterday. It is the image of the Sydney Brisbane Express at Wallangarra. This may be a useful and enduring link." (The link works, but I could not find Kim's photo there.)
