Engines News Railways Events Forum Suppliers List Links

There are over 300 mainline diesel locomotives listed on this site most of which are based on heritage railways and sites in the UK. The website also includes locomotives owned by preservation groups as well as railway companies who operate locomotives on the national railway network.

Despite the title of the website some locos included are not 'preserved' but are in private ownership as working locos. It is not the intention of this website to provide a definitive list as to what is ‘preserved' but only to compile a pictorial record of former BR locomotives, still in existence, that are likely to work or have worked on the heritage railway network in the UK.
