Preserved Railway Stocklist


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


Register & Login

Access to this website requires membership and is free of charge.

Registering your details is straightforward - the username (ID) is what you will be logged in as. If you add your name, please add your full name to avoid duplicates. If you get an error message, try another name. If you have a real problem, please contact giving your details and explain your difficulty.



The search facility has a LIVE sightings facility, which enables members to add details of their own sightings and includes a drop-down menu of all previous sightings. Most entries displayed as ‘Editor’ will have been added by one of the editing team via another source.

To enter a new sighting, use the search facility as normal to find a single, or a group of records. Open the full record then click on the 'New Sighting' link. This will take you to a new page where several fields are available. Your Username (ID) should already be there.

The Date & Where Seen fields must also be completed. There is also 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. We would appreciate your input in this area to assist the current editing team. The most recent sighting will always 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. We hope this has been completed successfully along with the adding of wagon bodies located in fields.

Steve has 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.



Future Developments

Irish stock of all gauges has been added so updating of Area Stock List reports is the next priority. Other reports may be added as and when time permits.

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 etc. Other features will be added in due course, as long as there is no abuse of the system.

It is intended to remove non-preserved or industrial modern operational public Underground stock & Trams to their own databases. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to provide for you and we will endeavour to do our best to help.
