A somewhat ad hoc collection of photos, representing the fact that I haven't spent much time in asia. In 1999, I visited Delhi and Bombay in India, and there is a good swag of photos from the National Rail Museum in Delhi. Some others (notably from the famous Himalya and Darjeeling Railway, but also other areas of asia such as Japan) have been kindly donated to this collection by Stewart Hughes, per medium of email.
In December 2003, I visited Hong Kong for the first time with my digital camera, so there's a big swag of trams in here.

The well-known (and photographed) Trams of Hong Kong, together with some MTR and KCR trains. Also included is a visit to the Hong Kong Railway Museum.
Mainly the Monorail at Sunway, Petaling Jaya. Also some museum photos, courtesy Trevor Dix
Martin Davies, a colleague at Monash University, discovered my love of railways, and lent me a couple of dozen slides of his trip on the Trans Siberian Railway in 1990. Here's what he said:
Note there are three trains that cross "Siberia". My trip was on the Trans-Mongolian (Moscow-Beijing). The other two are the Trans-Manchurian Moscow-Beijing via Manchuria and the Trans-Siberian proper (Moscow to Vladivostok). The trip was taken in 1990.
We had a Russian train, a Mongolian train and a Chinese train en route. One of them was steam.
In 1999, I visited Delhi and Bombay in India, and there is a good swag of photos from the National Rail Museum in Delhi (yet to be scanned). Some others (notably from the famous Himalya and Darjeeling Railway) have been kindly donated to this collection by Stewart Hughes, per medium of email.

Trevor Case has also written to me with the following comments:
I've been enjoying dipping into your rail photo page, and look forward to a more serious session when I get time. I was particularly interested in your Asian page and enjoyed the Indian scenes, especially the crowd of onlookers as the engine was turned at Abu Road, please pass on my congratulations to Stewart.
You might like to check out the following link and think about adding it to your Indian site:
(ajh) Done. See above! Have a look at items 4. The NRM page 8. WP glory ... to which I have contributed, and 9. Pakistan ... which again contains some of my photos. There is an incredible amount of material on the site which is administered by an Indian ex pat called Shankar who lives in the UAE. Drop him a line if you want to add the link, mention I put you on to him, he is a terrific fan and has helped many of us put material on the web. I suggest you also check out John Lacey's sites of Indian photos. John lives in NSW and Shankar developed his pages and encouraged me to follow so I will also add another link:-
Shankar also organized this page for me:- http://www.geocities.com/frontier_mail/goa.htm
If you would like a few extra photos on Asia I can offer you more Indian material (not previously published), and Pakistan,Indonesia, China and Turkey..the Asian side!
Ps my camera is an old Pentax KM and my slides/prints have been commercially copied to cdrom format; these days I'm more into video but cruising through sites like yours gets me all steamed up!
