The aim of the web-site is to give the history of the Scottish Railways. The site will also include pages on Steelworks, Canals, Steamers, Towns, Drove roads and Military roads in Scotland. A good number of lines in England and Wales are included.


Queries about non-railway matters are also welcome, but note that my knowledge of Scottish Geneology and Bus Services is somewhat limited - I'll try and pass on queries to appropriate bodies however. Should you request it I can place a query on an appropriate page for others to reply to.


I am very happy to have my site linked to. Presently the site is called "RAILSCOT". The preferred link is to:

If you would like to send me a photograph for inclusion on this site I would be very happy to incorporate it. Similarly I can perhaps find a picture of something you may be looking for.
