    Just wondering if there are any Railway Plant groups in the USA?
    Things like Tampers, Regulators etc
    Trying to find out information on some 1970s 80s equipment of a similar nature here in the UK but derived from US.

    Hi Bryan, you could try posting a question here:

    Railway Preservation News is one of the more 'sensible' U.S. sites where many of the forum members are actively involved on heritage lines. All the best for the festive season.
    Ray.

    Try www.railroad.net it seems a large proportion of railroad employees use it, and might provide a pointer.
