Submission Form
Please use this form to submit your trainspot.
Please give us as much information as possible - the more that you can tell us, the more useful your Trainspot will be.

A requirement for the site is at least one image from the location, without an image there is not enough information for a trainspots page. We will contact you once we have recieved this completed form asking you for some images to illustrate the location. All the pictures on Trainspots are small and are not intended to be high quality. Also of note is the image chosen for 'Figure 1' on the location page will be automatically thumbnailed, and used as the master shot in the indexing. So this image should be chosen as the preferred shot at that location.

You can also use this form to update and existing location by filling in the fields that need updating. Or to contact us, just fill out the contact details and type your message in the location notes box.

If you would like to send in an image for the geotagged site then please look through the workflow.

We now have automated google maps driving directions. These will navigate you, as best the can, to the co-ordinates provided on the map at the top of the page. But is there anything useful to know about the local roads, speed cameras, odd road turnings, something obvious to look out for that will not be in the automatic information?

Is there a specific hotel or B&B that someone could stay at? Feel free to include a link to the hotel's website. But only fill this out if there is a specific place in mind, saying a large place will probably have a B&B will not help. We can always search for it if you don't know.
