UK Preserved Railway Stock List 

Very many grateful thanks to all inputters and suppliers of information, pictures and kind comments over the years, especially to Steve Best and Mick Cottam RIP, who instigated this website, With a computer breakdown and other issues, it is time to call an end to this long adventure and until the sun finally sets on it around Feb 2024, you are welcome to enjoy the records retained within. Happy days,enjoy!         Mick Morgan

The only UK Search Facility to list multiple categories of railway stock in multiple locations.

We recently became  ukprsl.uk  so if you have a shortcut to the old prsl.uk site, just put uk in front!   If you've been diverted from the old site, we hope that you find this new one more stable and much faster.


No need to Log in any more, but if you want to Add Sightings, or look at your Sightings all together, you will need to remember and use your old Username (ID).  If you've never logged in before, you will need to  REGISTER  to record a Username on the system - it is free too!. You will only be asked for a name and password AND, if you forget your details, just contact mick(at)ukprsl.uk  and explain your difficulty.  NO information is knowingly passed any 3rd party!


 The search facility allows LIVE sightings, which enables members to add details of their own sightings and includes a drop-down menu of all previous sightings. Entries displayed as ‘Editor’ will have been added by one of the editing team.
To enter a new sighting, use the search facility as normal to find the Stock record. Click on the 'New Sighting' link and it will take you to a new page where several fields are available. You will need your Username (ID) so that you are credited with the sighting.
The 'Date' & 'Where Seen' fields must be completed and there is a 'Notes' field which, if applicable, can contain other information such as Working, Stored, Assumed ID etc.
Please double-check that what you have entered is correct before submitting the sighting. The most recent sighting will show at the top, but older sightings can be added as well.


Current Developments

 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 and we hope this has been completed successfully.
Steve compiled 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.

Mick Cottam has been very busy making adjustments to the Number fields and you should find that Searches are so much better laid out with stock numbers in true Ascending order.

Future Developments

It is still our intention to remove modern operational Underground Stock, Mainline Stock and Trams from the database. We hope this meets your requirements.

Please also let us know if there is anything else we can do and we will do our best to provide it for you.
