Preserved Railway Stock List
The only UK Search Facility to list multiple categories of railway stock in multiple locations.
Register & Login
The Preserved Railway Stock List site now requires membership. It is still free of charge and the download pages & latest stock update page are still available, updated to 1/7/14.
Registering details is straightforward. The username (ID) is what you will be logged in as. If you add your name, please add your full name as this is set-up to avoid duplicates. If you get an error try another name. If you have a real problem, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
Steve has compiled a format he's happy with for the 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.
The priority has been to enter the outstanding wagon bodies in fields and this has hopefully now been completed. It is hoped to update the Area Stock List reports every three months during the first week of June, September, December & March. Other reports may be added as and when time permits.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the new Public Sightings facility to see how people get on with it. If this new service is abused the member will be removed. If it continues across the board the facility will be removed.
Your Username ID has been linked to the sightings table in the DB so this means you can list all your sightings etc. Other features can be added later as long as there is no abuse of the system.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to provide you and we will put it our "to do" list.
