This site underwent reconstruction in November of 1999.  Several new pictures and a few new pages were added.  This page will contain changes during the last few months..
Wherez It At
I have decided to put the search tool just in this location and remove it from new or revised pages.

It's been a long time, but I am in the process of updating the site.  In the near future, all you are going to see is fixable dead links coming to life and dead dead ones removed.   I have a real bunch of material to post, unfortunately most of it is on a crashed disk.  I am getting recovery estimates at the present time.  Jennie Street has been hounding me for data. So, I have to get in to the data to get it to her.

Renato provided some images from Ingegneria Ferroviaria.  I have posted them 'Where', Maintenance of Way, and Four Arch Bridge at Devil's Doors.  I fixed the links at Eritrea 1941'

Added some pictures to Eritrea 1941 page.  Dave Engstrom sent me some that were different in the Italian edition than the English edition.

Somewhere about Christmas time, the site passed 3000 visitors.

Renato Gaudio sent me an article from the Magazine L'Espresso.
  Also, he sent me some material on the Ansaldo Locomotives I have put up on model 442 and model 443.  Roger Whifin's (now) mother-in-law was one of the Red Cross evacuees from Asmara who left the city by train.

Roger Dodson photographed a railway worker taking a break near Tract C.  I added it on Operating the Line.

I haven't done anythng since July.  Have some tables from Le Ferrovie Coloniali Italiana that I haven't posted.  I will be adding them soon.

I received my 2000th visitor on August 25 (since November 16).

Valerio Varriale  sent me a nice e-mail praising the site.  Many thanks Valerio.

Mke Metras was at Kagnew Station from 1967 & 1968 then again in 1969 and 1970.  When he was there, he studied the Ropeway and now has a site devoted to it.

Sometime early on the 16th of April, I got  my 1,000th visitor in 5 months.  I wonder when 2,000 will show up.  An average of 200 per month isn't bad for a page about an obscure railway.
