Steam and heritage railways are among Britain and Ireland's most popular tourist attractions. From minature railways in parks to restored standard gauge lines, the "Great Little Trains" of Wales to historic seaside trams, railways and railway musuems have something for everybody.
Railtracks is a directory of preserved, steam and heritage railways and railway-related museums. Whether you know nothing about trains, but just fancy a ride behind a steam locomotive, or you're a railway enthusiast with years of dedication behind you, there's something in here for everybody.
Every picture tells a story, and everybody's opinion matters. On every railway and museum page, you can see photos uploaded by previous visitors, and upload your own. Tell us your own stories in the comments section, or ask other people about their experience.
Railtracks is a new website (launched in summer 2018), so, to begin with, we're starting out with a blank slate as far as comments and ratings are concerned. To make this a more valuable resource for everyone, we need you to tell us your opinions of the railways and museums you've visited, and share your favourite photos with us. We've made a start by using photos from Wikipedia and Flickr, so that as many railways and museums as possible do have something to illustrate them. But there are still several with no photos. And, in any case, we'd prefer to use photos submitted directly to the site rather than those borrowed from elsewhere. So, please, help us by contributing!
