    Sort of defeats the object doesn't it?

    Well, it depends what the object is. As a consumer of the information, I'd like one comprehensive and authoritative list of all railway preservation groups. The HRA site is almost complete - certainly, it has links to all of its members that have web sites - and it seems to be kept fairly well up-to-date. So there's no point duplicating it. Concentrate on the sites it doesn't include:
    - UK & Irish groups that are not HRA members: tends to be the smaller ones, such as individual loco societies.
    - Unofficial or semi-official sites such West Somerset Wizard's WSR site.
    - Foreign groups. Best to link to equivalents of the HRA site, or to independant "comprehensive" sites, if possible.
