Railway Technical Web Pages, a site packed with articles about railways, covering technical, operational and financial issues. Although we have recently rebuilt the site, regular readers will still see the same basic structure underneath the new face and we have retained the original page names to help you find your way to pages you might want to reference again.
We publish Infopapers on specific subjects from time to time. The Infopapers List indexes what is currently available.

What We Offer
We include a wide range of subjects - planning, finance, operation, design, systems, engineering, production and maintenance. Both technical and operation aspects are covered. There's plenty of pictures and graphics. There is also some information about steam locomotives, including a steam glossary and an explanation of locomotive wheel arrangement descriptions.
In our articles, we use the UK railway system as the base technology but there are also articles and information about other systems, like the US, as appropriate. Articles and glossaries are provided for a range of subjects.
