Preserved Railway Stock
Editorial Team Page
We hope that new sightings and movements will be reported via our Yahoo Group firstname.lastname@example.org
If you find any serious errors in any records, you can also report them that way for everyone's information.
Although our editors can update any record, they have responsibility for certain sections of Stock as listed below. Therefore anything specific to those areas should be reported direct to them. Please contact the relevant editor by clicking on their name. New editors are always needed, so if you have an area of interest not covered below please contact the Group.
New locos, movements and any other relevant information is updated by anyone with the time!
Wagons & Coaching Stock
Tony Ellis – Tony has been adding new locations for the many standard gauge Wagon bodies that are scattered around the country and keeping track of current Wagon and Coaching Stock. Volunteers to share this work should initially contact Tony to indicate an interest and decide how to split any work.
Mick Cottam – Mick acts as the photo editor, linking all the photos via our Smugmug account to the relevant record on the search facility. He will also be able to update fields such as Last Sighting Date, Livery & Status if a current photo reveals any changes. Photo contributions are always welcome!!
Chris – Chris will be reviewing trip reports from various sources. Primarily adding sighting dates as well as anything else the report reveals, such as livery, status amendments and new stock arriving or no longer on site.
The following are those involved at particular locations that are well placed to update the current situation. This can involve anything from minor amendments, historical notes, to restoration work carried out.
Gloucester & Warwickshire Railway
Peter Bennett - Peter is a working member in the C&W department based at Winchcombe.
Great Central Railways
Matt Baker - Matt is a working member of the GCR and is our most recent inputter. Initially he will be checking and updating our GCR records and we would hope that once completed, he would take on a more general role.
North Yorkshire Moors Railway
Bryan Blundell – Bryan is a working member in the PW department based at Newbridge.
Behind The Scenes
Mick Morgan – Mick acts as general dogsbody and keeps www.uklocos.com up-to-date with locomotive movements for the Industrial Railway Society. Please let Mick or the Yahoo Group know if you notice anything out of place - visiting engines are not recorded as there are too many movements to record, especially in the summer, unless they are at least a month duration.
Rob Jefferys – Rob will initially work in the background and populate the ‘Location & Owner Website’ fields found on the search facility. If you do come across any broken links please let Rob know.
Live updating has been thoroughly tested so we would love to hear from anyone else who would like to get involved, preferably in an area you are familiar with. You will need a basic understanding on how to use on-line forms, that's all, and full instructions will be provided.
Please note that no editor is expected to take this on as a full time job. There is no rush or time limit. If you can spare a few hours a week & would seriously like to get involved then please contact the Yahoo Group email@example.com or one of the editors to register your interest.
