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

    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.
