Sophie Hunt from a group in the UK sent me a notice that the Microsoft password checker page I had on this page is no longer available. 
Once in a while, links may go dead, especially since checking them across 650+ pages gets near impossible for one person (sorry about that).....
So here is the link to her company's page.... it seems to be a much nicer page than the Microsoft page ever was, check it out!....

I'm partial to a town in East Texas called Tyler cause I used to live there.
I'm partial to this website because of that, and because Ken does a most excellent job of researching history.
Check out what he has uncovered about railroading in East Texas!!!

Foreign trains get a bad rap from a lot of Americans.  I dunno why, for they offer the railfan a lot of variety... something different to shoot.  I was in France for 18 days back in 2002, and couldn't get enough of the stuff!  Personally, I'm bored with the Dash-9's, especially in the dreary black ones we get here in Baltimore on the NS.  So, to start off this page, I'm listing a great railfan page, in English, on Swedish trains.  The website is maintained by Ulf Herdenberg, and he has done a great job presenting the engines, rolling stock, MOW equipment, buildings, bridges, and tunnels of Sweden.  Mr. Herdenberg has graciously allowed me to use a few of his photos on my website.

Mr. Herdenberg also turned me onto a site for Swedish signals, but it is in Swedish.  However, it is still very worthwhile checking out!  Very detailed.
If anyone knows where it has moved, or if it is still around, please drop me a line, tnx.


You haf-ta check out Zachary G's Signal Website......
I don't know how this guy finds time to work and fix signals, and then put them on his website!
