About Us

Here at the UK Railways website we are keen to help you find out all about the remaining steam locomotives in Britain, which are nowadays primarily used for sightseeing. And where better to do this than in the North Wales region of Snowdonia, where the narrow gauge line offers you a chance to take in mountains, lakes, endless coastline, and picturesque countryside? You can learn all about the railways of the United Kingdom, and have a beautiful holiday at the same time. If you want to get involved with the UK Railways website you can get in touch with our team directly.

Throughout the United Kingdom steam locomotives could commonly be seen up until quite recently. The middle of the twentieth century saw them slowly be replaced by diesel and electric engines.


These kinds of engines, although quicker than steam locomotives, lack the romantic charm of an old steam horse coughing up a trail of steam as it chugs across the English countryside, passing through mountain tunnels and across beautiful bridges. Our website pays respect to this aspect of the UK’s past.



If you are interested in UK Railways, please contact us and we shall endeavour to answer your questions.

New Railways

There are many new railways built every year around the world connecting remote towns and cities.

Every year the tracks need additional work to maintain their safety and ensure all goods and passengers are delivered safely and securely.
