This version uses CSS to suppress those icons which do not exist, but therefore displays *all* icons which do exist in each series; there are up to 33 icons in each series.

Add the following to your monobook.css user subpage:

  Begin CSS from User:AlisonW/Rail Icons.
  This CSS hides the ugly text links to the file
  description pages of nonexistent rail icons.

.check-icon {
   display: none; 
   speak: none;

  End CSS from User:AlisonW/Rail Icons.
It helps a lot to use this table on a wide-screen display!


Note that the number of metals (tracks) is not normally signified in the graphic.
