General comments on the Country pages

Background

This section of the website shows links to the various countries with whom we have a relationship.

The details presented in this website, and also in "Eastern Star", were all correct at the time of publication.

Anyone planning to visit another country needs to be aware that locomotives and rolling stock can move about, from one location to another, for any number of different reasons.

In addition to the latest news that we may have about such countries, we may also post links to their museums, associated websites or social media that the end user may find to be of some interest. Please note that NERHT has no responsibility for the content of such items and their access is wholly the responsibility of the end user.

More comprehensive lists of museums and such like may be found on websites (note that such information may not always be up to date) as:

Visitors are advised to contact the local sites of interest to see what they currently have on view.

Be aware

It can also be the case that local people, including the police, may be suspicious of someone taking photographs of trains or railway installations. It always pays to do some research on a given country before visiting it, especially for anyone travelling alone or as part of a small group. The benefit of having a local guide should not be underestimated. And, of course, not every local person may be able to speak the language of the visiting individual or party.

Many locations take a very dim view of anyone trying to climb on the exhibits. Notices banning such activity are there for a reason. If you really want to climb up on something then be sure to ask permission from a person in authority. As a visitor they may make a special allowance.

Wheel configuration

Note that we use the wheel configuration for locomotives that follow the Whyte notation of counting the wheels, rather than the more European approach of counting the axles. Hence a 2-8-0 in Whyte notation would become a 1-D-0 in parts of the European mainland.
