NSW Railway Informationfor
Heritage Operators and Modellers

This site is administered by Rick Fletcher for the benefit of persons with an interest in railway operations in NSW. I have gathered some resources here which may be of value to heritage rail operators and railway modellers. Please read the DISCLAIMER.

It is not a blog, just a collection of rare or unusual photographs, documents and drawings presented in a way that makes them usable for all at an appropriate resolution and without obliterating watermarks.

Please feel free to access this for your own personal use but I ask you to respect the copyright of the owners of the documents and images. Rather than stealing the images from these pages, please just provide a link to your mates so that they can see the originals on my web site - along with the captions and other details.

If you would like to share some of your own material with viewers, presented under your own name (eg. the Hall Collection below), I would be pleased to host it for you on this site. Contact me for the best method -

Meeting Guides
Toolbox meetings are normally presented at the start of each work period. They are designed to provide constant reminders to workers of possible risks and dangers in the processes they are undertaking. They serve to reinforce the Safety Management System.
The notes provided here are not prescriptive nor do they attempt to cover every aspect of a topic.
These notes should be supplemented by a detailed Risk Assessment of your own work situation.
