A selection of other sites with related material.  Many of them are contemporary and fairly local, covering similar themes to my own site, though they all have their own identities and unique takes.  Some of them are mainly historical, this is particularly so with sites featuring the North East of England which at one time was a bit like West Cumbria but vastly more extensive. Also, most of them - the NE sites in particular - have some great pictures that are not railway related.
