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

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/

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...

Interesting Bug

I just spent about 4 hours trying to chase down a bug in the website. The site worked fine in Firefox but failed (sometimes) rather dramatically in the Chrome web browser. When this happens, it is often a problem in a difference in the way in which one browser rendered html tags versus the other. It...
