    Another news site is www.railannouncement.com which seems to avoid the style of some publications that copy and paste press releases .

    Thanks for all of these, I've added them to my reading list and look forward to keeping up with what's going on!

    Other than Rail magazine in print. I use Focus Transport blogsite for national news and Humber Transport blogsite for local news.

    Is there a free (ie non-subscription) website that includes a round-up of news from the preservation sector - loco & stock repairs, repaints, maintenence, transfers... railway expansion projects - that kind of stuff?

    http://www.therailengineer.com is essentially a trade magazine, but runs good items on major infrastructure projects - normally from the supplier's prospective.

    Hi all,

    I work for this website: http://www.smartrailworld.com/ It looks more at the technology and business side of things and features interviews with those working in the industry. Would be keen to hear any feedback you have as we are a relatively new site.

    Thanks, Steve

    Ir looks fine to me. I've added it to the long bookmarks list.
    Only thing that might help is if story space on main page was shorter so you can ignore some and then click to enlarge one below.
    A bit like Focus Transport I guess.

    Don't know about an app - I just go to http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/advanced and then fill in the boxes, and hey presto!

    There is an app, for Android and iOS, but it costs £2.99, and as @Bedpan has said the website works perfectly well on a phone, so you don't need to pay for the app.

    Despite what the RTT website says, the iOS app hasn't been available in the App Store for a very long time. RTT works very well in Safari I find

    You need to make five posts on the forum first and then it will enable the function and allow you to message other members of the forum. I see you have already made two posts so you will need to make three more posts on this forum before you can message other people on this forum. I believe it is an anti spam measure to stop spam bot accounts probably. Hope this helps.

    I used ABrail for rolling stock updates (MUs, Coaches etc) but the site is no longer being updated. Does any one know of a similar website for such info

    I'm putting a site together with annual fleet allocations for mainline locos and multiple units from 1975 to the current day. Eventually I hope to have an up-to-date list in there too. It will be fairly basic to start with but will hopefully be of use to modellers and simmers along with those trying to date photos and people like me that can look at fleet lists for hours. I'm aiming to get some of the data online by the end of the year. The long term aim is to have 1960 - current day but that's a long way off.
