Note that thanks to Let's Encrypt, that can be done at no charge. Drawback: you must automate your renewal process, since the certs expire three months after issuance.
This is rather easy if you have Apache or Nginx. Lighttpd needs some finageling but I have a script that does the job w/o too much fuss on my domain (redwolf.ws).

HTTPS on railroad.net works like a charm now.

I want to thank the previous owner, who preferred to remain in the background, for the opportunity, and the owner previous to him, Otto Vondrak, who recommended me as administrator when he sold the site.
Please also credit co-owners Mike Roque and Jessica Stallone, and please also credit RAILROAD.NET founder John Stewart who launched the site in 1996 and sold the site to us in 2004.
