Railway Links

These are links to other railway sites who have used my photos, or refer to them in one way or another. If you want to swap links, please just drop me an email with your link, and what it is that you have linked to, and I'll add it to this page.

From time to time I check these links, and remove them to the obsolete links page if the site is not accessible. Drop me a line if your site moves, and I'll keep the list up-to-date. Links with a date-time stamp indicate when the page was last checked.

I am currently restructuring these pages to be continent-based, which might help you in searching for what you want. Within continents, things are arranged alphabetically.

America - North

Transcontinental Railroad

A correspondent, Ryan Carrigan, has posted some interesting comments on the effect that railways had on the development of North America, particularly the USA. Check out

British Railway Modellers of North America (BRMNA)

Dave Venables of the British Railway Modellers of North America (BRMNA) (20131130:132848) , which has its headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, sent me some mail saying that he has a link to my image site.

America - South

Chinese Steam

One of my correspondents, Frank Mitchell, sent me a link to a Chinese Steam photo gallery . This has some nice photos of steam in snow!


Australian Steam

A very comprehensive listing of all preserved (static and operational) steam locomotives (20131130:132528) in Australia, organized by state.

Australian Railway Historical Society (ACT Divn)

I lived in Canberra for 13 years (1974-1987), and was active in the ACT Division of the Australian Railway Historical Society (20131130:132611). On their web site, they have a photo or two of mine.

A dedicated group of volunteers at Canberra is working to restore one of their exhibits, Garratt 4-8-4 + 4-8-4 6029, to steam - you can read about their efforts at their 6029 Blog Page (20131130:132746)


Years ago, I corresponded with some folks at Steam Ranger, who arranged for reciprocal links between this site and theirs. I think they have dropped their links to my pages, but I still maintain one to their pages.


Now come on, you didn't really expect anything in here, did you? Well, I suppose the Railway at the End of the World might almost qualify, but it is really in South America, q.v.

Extreme Steam

My thanks to Neil Leister for pointing out this interesting page on all sorts of unusual steam locomotives. Although I do have to say, having worked on garratt 6029 in Canberra to the point of restoring it to running condition, I don't see garratts as all that unusual!

As of 20110512:070831 I was unable to access Bruce's railway pages. He does have a web page, but I found no trace of railways there

Terry Menzies' Railway Page

Terry is a keen 38 class afficionado, and tells me that he is building a 5" gauge model of 3820, using some of my photos as a guide. He has a web page all about 3820. Glad to help out, Terry!

Hallo Eisenbahnfreunde! Gefallt mir gut die Homepage! Soll ich von meinen Seiten einen Link setzen? Ja, dann nenne mir bitte: Die URL der Website : ( Den Namen der Website : (John Hurst's Railway Photograph Catalogue) Schau doch auch mal bei mir vorbei: T3-Club Ostheide - OHE Osthannoversche Eisenbahnen AG - Uber einen Link und einen Eintrag in die Gastebucher wurde ich mich freuen!

Kim has written to me identifying his page on Queensland steam - photos taken in the 50's and 60's. He adds: "One of my images has been used by the Rail Workshops Museum in the Great Railway Journeys of Australia exhibition, opened yesterday. It is the image of the Sydney Brisbane Express at Wallangarra. This may be a useful and enduring link." (The link works, but I could not find Kim's photo there.)

Workshops Rail Museum

Katrina Stark, the Marketing Officer for the workshops rail museum in Ipswich wrote saying:

The Workshops Rail Museum is a campus of the Queensland Museum located in Ipswich in South East Queensland. The Museum celebrates the story of rail in Queensland and attracts thousands of visitors a year including schools, families and intrastate, interstate and international tourists, many of whom access the Museum's website prior to visiting.

We are creating a new webpage on The Workshops Rail Museum's website called "Rail Links" which will list Queensland, Australian and International tourist railways, railway museums and railway associations (please visit to see this page).

We would like to seek your permission to list your organisation and include a direct link to your website.

Katrina, it is done!
