I HAVE PAINSTAKINGLY COMPILED THE FULL 20 YEARS 'AS REPORTED' HISTORY OF ALL BRITISH RAILWAYS LOCOMOTIVE ALLOCATIONS, RE-ALLOCATIONS AND WITHDRAWAL DATES COMMENCING AUGUST 1950 WITH ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FROM 1948 AS AVAILABLE.
I DO NOT OFFER THIS WORK AS AN HISTORICAL TREATISE BUT AS AN INSIGHT TO THOSE OF US WHO WISH TO SEE AT A GLANCE THE MOVEMENT OF LOCOMOTIVES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY OR PERHAPS A PARTICULAR FAVOURITE LOCOMOTIVE OR DEPOT ALLOCATION HISTORY ETC.
THERE IS A WEALTH OF INFORMATION TO BE GLEANED BY THE ENTHUSIAST TO ASSIST IN A WRITING OR MODELLING PROJECT WHICH WERE THE REASONS FOR MY ENTERING INTO THIS UNDERTAKING.
THIS WORK WAS ORIGINALLY AVAILABLE FROM 1996 - 2001 AND HAS BEEN RE-INTRODUCED DUE TO A NUMBER OF LIKE MINDED ENTHUSIASTS WHO HAVE WRITTEN REQUESTING THAT I OFFER THEM ONCE AGAIN.
As modelling is mentioned above you may wish to visit my latest project at:

I will be regularly updating the progress of this new layout whilst under construction. At present the baseboards have been completed and construction methods are shown in detail, tracklaying is featured also the electrics and control panel along with scratchbuilt buildings and scenery.
