Welcome to the Locomotive Roster. Scroll down for the Locomotive Roster, current status of steam and diesel locomotives. 


The information on this page is kept as up to date as possible. However please remember that the locomotives we operate are old and things can go wrong, and locomotives are replaced. Also it is sometimes necessary to reallocate locomotives for operational reasons at short notice.
