Currently there are more than 360 preserved mainline locomotives in the UK. These can usually be seen at various preserved railways across the country.
This is a pictorial record of the many classes of locomotive that are currently being restored, having thankfully been saved from the cutter’s torch. For the sake of simplicity, locomotives have been labelled with their last running number worn before withdrawal. For more information about preserved British Rail locomotives see the Preserved-Diesels
or The AC Locomotive Group
