As engines are moved around between various preservation societies it is advisable to contact a site prior to visiting if you wish to see a particular locomotive. There are a number of Steam Preservation sites or web pages, one of the most comprehensive UK sites is Mark Dewell's Railway preservation pages and the National Railway Museum at York has pages of information.

As this site is a development area I would be grateful if you would please email any comments or questions to me at
