Where is the best place to go trainspotting?


Sorry, but this is not a site which can really assist with any trainspotting activities. It is suggested that you use your chosen web search engine to find alternatives.


What made you set up this site?


When the site founder was a young lad, a family friend worked on the railway close to our home which led to a few hours per week ´helping´ out at the local signalbox. Class 37s happened to be the main source of traction on freight trains in the Western Valleys of Gwent at the time and a over a number years many members the class were seen slogging up and gliding down the valley on a mixture of coal and steel related trains, which led to the ´fondness´ for the class.
