The following are details of Railway Newsgroups and Mailing Lists. There is a description of some, and details of how to subscribe, and how to unsubscribe. There are bare details of some more.
This newsgroup has a wide range of articles about United Kingdom and Irish railways. While the majority of posters are from Great Britain, there are some from various other parts of the world. It is a very mixed group with a generally unsympathetic outlook.
This newsgroup is for people to post binaries. It is mainly filled with pictures of North American trains. However, binaries are banned from most other newsgroups so everyone wishing to post Railway pictures should use this group.
This mailing list is intended for up to the minute UK railway gen.
