Railways in the Rest of the World Photographs

The navigation bar at the top got too large, and so I've relegated the rest of the world stuff to this separate page.

Africa

An embryonic collection of photos, representing the fact that I haven't spent much time in afria. What is here has been kindly donated to this collection by Stewart Hughes, per medium of email.

Americas (not including USA and Canada)

Cuba

Asia

A somewhat ad hoc collection of photos, representing the fact that I haven't spent much time in asia. In 1999, I visited Delhi and Bombay in India, and there is a good swag of photos from the National Rail Museum in Delhi. Some others (notably from the famous Himalya and Darjeeling Railway, but also other areas of asia such as Japan) have been kindly donated to this collection by Stewart Hughes, per medium of email.

In December 2003, I visited Hong Kong for the first time with my digital camera, so there's a big swag of trams in here.

China

Some photos of China, courtesy Stewart Hughes

Hong Kong

The well-known (and photographed) Trams of Hong Kong, together with some MTR and KCR trains. Also included is a visit to the Hong Kong Railway Museum.

India

In 1999, I visited Delhi and Bombay in India, and there is a good swag of photos from the National Rail Museum in Delhi (yet to be scanned). Some others (notably from the famous Himalya and Darjeeling Railway) have been kindly donated to this collection by Stewart Hughes, per medium of email.

Trevor Case has also written to me with the following comments:

I've been enjoying dipping into your rail photo page, and look forward to a more serious session when I get time. I was particularly interested in your Asian page and enjoyed the Indian scenes, especially the crowd of onlookers as the engine was turned at Abu Road, please pass on my congratulations to Stewart.

You might like to check out the following link and think about adding it to your Indian site:

(ajh) Done. See above! Have a look at items 4. The NRM page 8. WP glory ... to which I have contributed, and 9. Pakistan ... which again contains some of my photos. There is an incredible amount of material on the site which is administered by an Indian ex pat called Shankar who lives in the UAE. Drop him a line if you want to add the link, mention I put you on to him, he is a terrific fan and has helped many of us put material on the web. I suggest you also check out John Lacey's sites of Indian photos. John lives in NSW and Shankar developed his pages and encouraged me to follow so I will also add another link:-

Shankar also organized this page for me:- http://www.geocities.com/frontier_mail/goa.htm

If you would like a few extra photos on Asia I can offer you more Indian material (not previously published), and Pakistan,Indonesia, China and Turkey..the Asian side!

Ps my camera is an old Pentax KM and my slides/prints have been commercially copied to cdrom format; these days I'm more into video but cruising through sites like yours gets me all steamed up!

Thanks for that very interesting email, Trevor, and watch for further developments on these pages!
