This website presents a history of Scotland's railways. Lines are referred to by the original company name.

The website is owned by Ewan Crawford and was started in 1995. Originally it started as a overly detailed page about the Milngavie railway as a spoof of what could be done on the web - but this page was taken seriously by a number of visitors and so further pages were added.
