Poland

For database purposes we divided countries on our website into those that are subdivided into states, provinces and regions and those that are not. The site's software is quite different and some programming is required to make the change indicated. If you're looking at Poland and the site does odd ...

An Odd Duplicate

We had listed two 0-10-0s in Balti, Moldova and in Beltsey, Moldova. It turns out that Beltsey is an alternate spelling for Balti and the two locomotives are one and the same. So, we've consolidated the information into the correct locomotive and eliminated the duplicate. You can see the correct loc...

A Peculiar Problem

There are an indeterminate number of locomotives on the website where the larger images of the locomotive were corrupted (about 8 years ago) and as we encounter the broken images, we fix the problem. If you'll visit this link https://www.steamlocomotive.info/largeimage.cfm?which=318 you'll see what ...

Winton-built 16" gauge 2-6-0

Until a few years ago, a Winton-built 2-6-0 operated at the Port Elgin & Northshore Railroad in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada. Our page for this locomotive is at https://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomotive.cfm?Display=28076 . At present, the buildings and railroad, as well as the equipment are go...

Another New Feature

Everyone, I'm sure, has seen the What's New button on the website's front page. I will freely admit that that page was designed in written in about 30 minutes back in 2003. I have never, ever liked the way it looked, the way it was organized, etc. So today, I replaced the contents behind the button....

New Feature Added

If you look at the front page of the website, you'll see a button, just above the Donate graphic labelled Change Report. You can click on this, provide a date (or a month) and it will show you, in a reasonably tidy fashion, all the changes that were made to the database of locomotives on that day or...

An Ancient Bug

In the Notes system that allows you to attach Notes to locomotives, I discovered a bug that has existed since 2003. It's been fixed and you can read about it here https://steaminfo.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/the-notes-system/

Considerable enhancements have been made to the map system that displays maps for locomotives. You can contribute GPS coordinates in several convenient ways. See https://steaminfo.wordpress.com/2020/06/10/the-location-button/ for more information

Webmaster's Blog

I am adding near daily posts to the Webmaster's Blog (available from the front page) describing what's going on with the site. In the past I rarely did this, but Wordpress has supplied a new editor which makes it easier (and more fun) to write the blog posts. So if you're interested in the ongoing r...
