welcome  
 
Welcome to the home of industrial narrow gauge railways. This web site has been built to record information regarding current industrial and commercial narrow gauge railways operating throughout Europe.



Webmaster: Steve Thomason
Zubragel Torfwerk

The type of railways covered can vary from a small hand worked line with a single wagon, to the large freight and passenger carrying networks still operated in countries such as Austria, Spain, and Poland. The site does not concern itself with pleasure lines or museum operations. There are many other web sites with this information, some of which are shown in the links pages.

In this site you will find news regarding these railways. This is provided by site visits and from reports in the media. All visitors to the site are welcome to contribute to the news pages. Videos and DVDs of these fast disappearing railways have been produced for many years and details of the current releases are shown elsewhere. If you wish to see what others have written about the videos and DVDs click here.

 
SPRINGFIELD AGRICULTURAL RAILWAY

Video footage always wanted

Have you any narrow gauge railway video footage that is collecting dust on a shelf somewhere? If you have, why not give other people the change to see it, and consider letting J & S Productions edit and release the footage for you? In line with the scope of the website we would be interested in any industrial ng subjects, or freight based operations from larger ng lines. Depending on the length and the quality of video available, we could even consider a small payment for the use of it. It could be included on a release with similar subject matter, or maybe even released as a full DVD in its own right. Drop us an email and let us know what you have.

All the productions are now available to be purchased online via the secure and simple PAYPAL order process. Just select the video/DVD of your choice and follow the onscreen instructions.
