We're happy to introduce our website update!
We corrected some minor errors in order to make our site more user-friendly and we updated our design. But there are also two major updates that we'd like to provide more detailed information about. New database structure
We launched a new database structure providing a more detailed description of the railway vehicles and equipment. We have added two new objects: model and series.
Let's take the MaK G1206 locomotive for example. The page for this model
contains the entire technical data, the list of the companies the locomotive serves for as well as its photos at these companies. You can also find all the stories published for this model at its webpage. From the model page you can go to the class page
and see the locomotive service data summary for the company including the photos, map and railway numbers. Here, you can find a link to the model page.
If several models belong to one series you'll see the link to the entire series, for example: at the model page of the 2TE10U
locomotive, you can find the link to the 2TE10 series
page containing its brief description and a list of models of this series.
Our database editors ensure data reliability: it is very important work and, if you wish, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to join our team. If you find any errors or inaccuracies, please click the report link to provide correct and accurate data. New maps
We changed the geographical objects mapping. For example: when viewing the Chiasso Station
location, you can see the basic terrain map or switch to the transport or railway map.
We'd like to bring your attention to a very important need, which is that you need to fill in the location field when uploading your photos. Please be very accurate when mentioning the mapping place, giving priority to the railway objects. If you can't find any, please add them
to our geographic location database.
And, last but not the least, a personal photo map
for every project participant would be nice.
Thank you for staying with us!
