The new fifth edition of Diesel & Electric Loco Register contains a complete list of all diesel and electric locomotives operated by British Railways, its constituents and successors, that have been capable of working on the main line railway network, including shunters and departmental locomotives.

Detailed entries give up-to-date information on the current status of every locomotive, showing which are preserved, which have been scrapped, or the current operating company. Historic details are also included, listing every number carried, entry to service and withdrawal dates, every official name carried and a number of useful reference tables.

Tabulated information is provided for every locomotive including:

  • All numbers carried in chronological order of use
  • Year of entry to service
  • Year of withdrawal from service
  • Status or current operator of locomotives still in existence
  • Year of scrapping for locomotives no longer in existence
