History of these pages
Steamloco.info started as a personal hobby project. I had multiple objectives: learn HTML and PHP and collect information concering preserved steamlocomotives.
On the internet a wide variety of templates, tools and guidelines can be found to build your own website. I tried to minimize the use of tooling to gain as much knowledge as possible in the limited time I had.
Fact is that this approach led to a working website, but also was on 'web 1.0'-level. Therefore I started with version 2 of this site - the version you are looking at now.
The set-up is more logical, interaction with users is now available.
The table will give an overview of the latest updates on this site.
