Well, to put it simply: the time has come.
The time has come for the PEIR (Prince Edward Island Railway) to have its own collaborative, indexed, searchable and accessible corner of the internet.
After a few years of on and off thought and consideration, and after seeing one previous attempt: I have taken it upon myself to follow in Steve Meredith’s footsteps (DARdpi.ca / DARwiki) and start a PEI Railway wiki website entitled the “PEIRwiki.”
With the PEIR, I’ve always found that while there is a vast amount of information out there, it’s all quite scattered. When I was new to the interest of railroading, I found this scattering of information daunting.
I want to change that.
I want anybody with even a passing interest in this railway to access detailed, accurate information. I also suspect this will augment my own research in the railway.
So with that said, I present to the world PEIRwiki.ca.
Anybody who is interested in or knows somebody who would be interested in contributing, please get in touch.
I dedicate this effort to Steve Hunter.
