Preserved Railway Stock List

The only UK Search Facility to list multiple categories of railway stock in multiple locations.

 Logging-In is NOT necessary now!  However, NEW members must first  REGISTER  and existing members must use and remember their Username to be able to Add and Check their stock Sightings. If you have a problem, like forgotten username, let me know.  Mick M

Registering is straightforward and free, just remember the Username (ID) you use!. Add your full name and password in case of problems. If you have a real problem, contact mick(at)uklocos.com giving your details and explain your difficulty. 


 The search facility allows LIVE sightings, which enables members to add details of their own sightings and includes a drop-down menu of all previous sightings. Entries displayed as ‘Editor’ will have been added by one of the editing team.
To enter a new sighting, use the search facility as normal to find a single, or a group of records. Click on the 'New Sighting' link and this will take you to a new page where several fields are available. You will need your Username (ID) so that you are credited with the sighting.
The 'Date' & 'Where Seen' fields must also be completed and there is a 'Notes' field which, if applicable, can contain other info such as Working, Stored, Assumed ID etc.
Please check you have entered the correct info to the correct record before submitting the sighting. The most recent sighting will show at the top, but older sightings can be added as well.


Current Developments

 Several new categories have been added to accommodate ex Departmental & Internal User stock. This has involved amending records to display as their final use in service and we hope this has been completed successfully.
Steve compiled Area Stock List Reports found on the Download Page and in future these may include a check box for those who like to print & tick their sightings on trips.

Mick Cottam has been very busy making adjustments to the Number fields and you should find that Searches are so much better laid out wih stock numbers in true Ascending order.


Future Developments

 Irish stock of all gauges has been added so the updating of Area Stock List reports is the next priority.
The Public Sightings facility seems to have been used successfully and we hope this is useful to you. Your Username (ID) is linked to the sightings table in the DB and you can therefore list all your personal sightings. Other features may be added in due course, so as long as there is no abuse of the system.

It is intended to gradually remove modern operational Mainline Stock, Underground Stock & Trams from the database and hope this still meets your needs.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do and we will endeavour to do our best to help.
