Railtracks is a development of the popular ABC Railway Guide website. I had originally considered including a section on the ABC Railway Guide to cover heritage and preserved railways, but felt that would detract too much from its role as a database of current National Rail infrastructure. So, instead, Railtracks was set up as a separate site.
The aim of Railtracks is to include anything which might reasonably be described as a "heritage" or "preserved" railway, as well as rail-related museums and railways which are part of other tourist attractions. As a starting point for this, it lists all current members of the industry body, the Heritage Railway Association. However, other railways and rail attractions will be included if appropriate.
Important! Railtracks.uk has no connection with the now-defunct railway infrastructure operator, Railtrack, or with any other company currently called Railtrack.
