Preserved Railway Stock

Editorial Team Page


We hope that new sightings and movements will be reported via our IO Group,. Details can be found by logging on to https://groups.io/     

Once logged in, search for the  'preservedstock' group and you will be able to filter, browse and send messages to like minded people. You will also be able to send direct to preservedstock@groups.io  using your normal email facility.

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 had been adding new locations for the many standard gauge Wagon bodies that are scattered around the country and he kept track of current Wagon and Coaching Stock. Unfortunately his death towards the end of August 2022 means that  volunteers are urgently wanted for this work. You should initially contact one of the team below to express your interest in this 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 and storage cost contributions are always welcome!!


Trip Reports

Editor's Requests

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.

If you can spare a few hours a week & would seriously like to get involved then please join the preservedstock Group.io group and contact  preservedstock@groups.io  or one of the editors direct to register your interest.
