Over 10 years ago I accumulated many scans of steam on the Indian sub-continent, the intention was that it would form the basis of further Images of Rail CD-ROMs.

Then I met Yuehong and the project got sidelined to put it mildly. Since 2004 we have invested our time on video instead and organising ourselves to the point where by November 2014 we were not only 'settled' in the UK but Yuehong now had British citizenship. It was time to take stock and the time was ripe to complete what I long ago dubbed 'Raj Steam'.

Eventually, the images will be available as a (cheap) download, these will be higher quality JPG images and without the watermarks present in these versions.

If you can contribute, please email me at the address below, those whose pictures are used will be invited to download the existing Images of Rail products and will obviously be entitled to the parts of this project as they are prepared.
