In October 2020, the enthusiast community lost a key ally, following the death of Dr. David Randles. David’s website – www.uksteam.info – was a primary source of information on main line steam workings to many people, and one that was sorely missed following David’s medical issues in May the previous year.
Railway Herald Magazine approached David’s family, through a third party, to offer to host the site going forward in David’s memory. After several months of waiting for the legal process to complete, and working with the executor of his estate, it has finally been possible to transfer the domain into our ownership and return David’s site to the internet.
Pressure of work means its is not possible to return up-to-date information to uksteam.info, although this is available through www.railwayherald.com/railtours, but the site will remain as David last updated it in May 2019, as his legacy and an historical point of reference. Information on the current railtour scene, as well as timing information for forthcoming workings can be found, free of charge, on the Railway Herald website at www.railwayherald.com/railtours.
