Rail UK Timeline Home



There have been many changes to railways, locomotives, stations, etc. over the years. This 'Timeline' will allow you to read about what changes were happening for any particular month, or to search the timeline for a particular locomotive number, class, shed, station name, etc. The database is split into two areas:

  • Articles
  • Motive powers changes and notes

You can either:

  • Perform a full search covering both articles and motive power changes/notes
  • Search the articles
  • Search the motive power changes/notes

When selecting the relevant item from the searches, the information will be displayed with the search keyword (if used) highlighted in yellow

Note: There may be slight overlaps in the dates, for example the Timeline for June 1963 may contain odd snippits of information relating to May (or earlier months) in 1963
