Perhaps this topic deserves it's own header on the main page.
For the enjoyment and further help, I think it would be a fun idea for everyone to post the railway websites they frequently visit, and perhaps split this up in modeling websites and prototype websites.
Anyway, here are my top sites:
-The Gauge (Big Blue) at http://www.the-gauge.net
-The Diesel Detailer at http://dieseldetailer.proboards.com
-The rust bucket at http://tws-rustbucket.com (no www!)
-Southern Pacific Modelers Society at http://southernpacificmodelerssociety.freeforums.org
Of course on top of these come this forum and site, and my own blog. I also spend some time at the UKFreemo forum, Trainlife, RMWeb (www.rmweb.co.uk) and a few others (the Model railroad hobbyist website being one, but also there I don't find it too well organised, the forums are fairly hidden. The magazine is great though.)
I don't have many, it's mainly the pictures sites I visit, if I want references of a certain locomotive etc. My main interest is model railroading, rather than prototype railroading, but can't do one without the other.
The one I enjoy the most because it's not riddled with adds etc. is :
Rail Road pictures archives at: http://www.rrpicturesarchives.net
The Espee modelers archive at http://espee.railfan.net
I am also a member at trainorders, but truth be told, even though I did renew a few months ago, I am sorry I did. I find the user interface terrible, have the greatest difficulty finding stuff, or it is perhaps my topics but this will be the last year I have subscribed there, unless they overhaul the site in a major way.
Looking forward reading about yours.
If it doesn't fit above, try here!
