About Us

Railway Portrait

We are all simply Train Lovers!

Railway Portrait has now been online for nearly ten years however the daily routine of building other people websites has gotten in the way of developing this personal project of ours.

Nevertheless with the growing popularity of You Tube and other rail related websites we felt the need still existed for one site that brought all these together as a central station of online railway news and information.

There are some genuinely enthusiastic train followers out there in cyber-land and we want to share their journeys with you whether it be in New Zealand, Austria or crossing the Cambrian Fells in the dead of winter! ["what?? where is that??"]

Jonathan 'Jonboy' Walton has already done a lot of 'travelling' over the last 10 years [he calls it work]' and has personally been involved with some of the projects of which you will find information on the site. Our travelling will continue as we find the very best of the rail video trips available for the virtual traveller to take.

Railway Portrait is an Australia My Land initiative as a compliment to Australia My Land.com.au

The concept behind Australia My Land is to offer a website where domestic and international visitors can learn more about Australia for educational reasons and for tourism and visiting the country.

AML is like an online 'glossy magazine' of Australia with links to various ASSOCIATE WEBSITES so that you can plan a trip around the country and enjoy the many pastimes and sightseeing spectacles there are.

Advertise on Railway Portrait and Australia My Land Associate Websites

Your advertisments on our websites attract more than just people; more importantly they create relevant SEO backlinks to your website, thus promoting your website ranking in Google and other Search Engines. Due to the content-rich style of the numerous Australia My Land PARTNER WEBSITES including Railway Portrait an advertisement and its links will provide top ranking relevant SEO BACK-LINKS for YOUR Business Website.



There is also a great Associates Marketplace where Associates have their very own Associates Profile Website to promote themselves, a hobby or a business. It can be used as a social or a business website and it has its own BLOG and profile pages.

There are some great benefits and opportunities.

For Associates planning a trip there are some great discounts and savings; and for those who wish to do a little work, great commissions in supporting the promotion of Aussie (and some international) business.


The Team at AML

Lyle Stacpoole BA DipM LasTrade Web Lyle was first introduced to the 'idea' of the internet while working as a paint rep in 1990. In a discussion with former CBS R and A Manager Ross Williams he was told of a wonderous new concept called the 'internet' with which he could promote his music. He first put his own music website online just 6 years later and stacpoolemusic.com.au has been online ever since.

Lyle has been developing his Information Technology (IT) skills now for over twenty years since 1996 and has been marketing and selling products since he was 17. He qualified for his Bachelor of Arts Degree in 2007 at The University of New England with 'majors' in Music and in Communications Studies and more recently confirmed his experience and qualifications in marketing with a Diploma of Marketing in 2016/2017.

Lyle has many years experience in business management, sales and training, computer programs and databases, website development, and even has experience in the recording studio. Lyle's first venture onto the internet was to put up his own website featuring his original music and his interest in building websites grew from there.

Having already achieved qualifications in the building industry as carpenter, plasterer and painter as well as running his own business, Lyle is qualified to help new businesses, especially musicians, to set up their own business. Other qualifications in Training and Business Management as well as experience in the banking industry means he can help new entrepeneurs put in place a business plan, including website and online marketing plan, marketing material, book-keeping procedures and even publishing and recording strategies.

Stacpoole Music and Internet, under the trading name LasTrade, has over 45 years experience in various business ventures, marketing and sales and music industry activity. Web development is not just about building great looking websites, it is about advertising and marketing a businesses products and services online with real initiatives, performing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) techniques and client friendly websites.

In the last 12 years Robert has been involved in building websites and online marketing preparing and developing a new venture - Australia My Land.

Rob has been associated with Stacpoole Internet since he and Lyle started putting the concept of Australia My Land together and has in that time looked after a number of satisfied clients and learned a whole lot about SEO and Google requirements for a positive website, becoming our resident expert on the subject.

Rob and Lyle are thus proud of the number of clients' websites they have listing on page one of the search phrases most relevant to their clients businesses and whose phones keep them busy with new client prospects.

"When I met Lyle and found out he built websites I told him of my dream site (Australia My Land). I had left Sydney after a couple of heart turns and selling my Wedding Car Hire business and had headed to sunny Queensland. Little did I know that in just four years I would be back in Sydney and in a new industry, building websites for MY clients. I have travelled overseas on a few occasions and came up with the idea of AML in Italy and would now like to travel Australia more to build on what we have really only just started; after 12 years!"
