Like any website, Railpage incurs operational costs. Servers have to be upgraded every few years, internet traffic and electricity bills have to be paid for and backups need to be run. These things all cost money and while the staff operate this site for pleasure there's a limit to how much of our own money we're willing to contribute to support this website.
This is where advertising comes in.
We use Google AdSense to recover some of the operational costs of running Railpage by placing ads throughout the website. Each time you click on one of these ads and view the website it takes you to, we get a small amount of money. You don't pay anything - the organisation that placed the ad pays.
Now, nobody likes advertising and we appreciate that. We appreciate that you may run AdBlock or similar services on other websites, but we ask that you add an exception for *.railpage.com.au to your ad blocking application.
Of course, if you're feeling generous we also accept donations. Head on over to our donations page to get started
