| About The Site
This page was last updated 16 March 2003
British Trams Online aims to be one of the best tram and light rail websites on the internet. The site started off life hosted by Tripod with free webspace but following a good initial reaction and technical problems the site suffered 4-6 weeks of downtime. As such the site has now moved to new servers where it will be able to expand further and where there are no annoying pop-up windows!|
When I started off the site in late 2002 the main purpose was to provide a one stop location for the latest news and features on British tram and light rail systems. Practically eveything on the site is by myself although limited information has been provided by other enthusiasts. I would love it if there was anyone out there who would be willing to become a correspondent for all the systems out there providing news and photos of 'their' system, as I have work commitments which mean in the summer (May-August) I can not put as much time into the site as I would like. Anyone out there can help, no matter how small, by telling your friends about the site or maybe by finding news stories in your local newspapers (where is the majority of the news stories here originate). Both the Hall of Fame and the Features pages need ideas as to what can be added there so don't hesistate to suggest something (or even better writing something and supplying it to us!).
The site will always be developing with new features coming all the time. Ideas are welcomed from everyone if you think there is something that the site is lacking. The email address remains firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the same address you should contact if there is something on the site which you feel is either incorrect or is breaking copyright by being here. My aim is not to just copy things so I would like to be aware if I am infringing anybodys copyright!
Finally this site is not affiliated to any one tram organisation, although I am personally members of 2, but it is the aim through the links to Amazon to raise money for tram restoration. If you know of a group who would be grateful for this money please let me know and consideration will be given to donating the money here.
