Welcome to Trainiax! In this site you'll find drawings, photos and
recordings of trains—one of the
world's most fascinating modes of transportation. All Aboard!
2009-12-01: A revamped Photos section has been a work in progress over the last few months. It has now been uploaded. Check it out!
2009-09-25 - New layout: For 10 years, the site has followed the same basic full-width layout and has been edited primarily using HTML WYSIWYG editors. I did not previously know to work with CSS and advanced HTML. Now I do, so for the first time the site is being edited using CSS and HTML code directly. Results: an all-new layout incorporating a left-side menu for the first time, along with uniform fonts and smaller page file size. Links to other site sections will lead to older versions of those pages until I am able to update them.
Check the What's New section for additional site updates.

About the Site
Trainiax has been online on various servers since 2000. Right from the beginning, it has incorporated a little bit of everything—train drawings, photos, sound recordings and information. Over the years it has grown from a very modest collection of images on pages with plain text to an archive of thousands of images spread over hundreds of pages. It has received very gradual updates in presentation and layout that ultimately led to the present CSS-based version.
The site name "Trainiax" arose out of a need for something more original than "Michael Eby's Train Homepage". It's derived from the plural of "trainiac", which is an expression I've sometimes used to describe railfans (such as myself).
