 ..Freeview 2600 photographs of all existing 147 GWR locos.. .....Photos of all surviving 147 GWR steam locomotives..... View 2600 images of all 147 preserved GWR locomotives.. ..Peter Pascoe's photos of every existing GWR steam engine..

Probably the most comprehensive display of photos of all existing GWR locomotives available, this website includes 2600 images of all 147 existing GWR locomotives. Basic information on each locomotive is included. Three GWR Diesel Railcars & Steam Railmotor 93 are also included, but narrow gauge locos are not included.

Most photographs have been taken from 2008 to date, but for some locomotives images include photos taken in Barry Scrapyard & other locations from 1965 to the mid-1980s. The aim is to photo as many as possible each year so as to show the latest state of any particular locomotive. 133 have now been photographed in 2016.

Please also note that several locations will not necessarily be accurate because locomotives are often temporarily found elsewhere for repair, overhaul, restoration, main-line use or on hire to other Preserved Railways. It is advisable to check the location of a locomotive before travelling to see it.

For the time being, Nos 2861 & 4115 will continue to be listed (but are not included in the 147 total in Para 1 above): 2861 & 4115 are substantially dismantled with parts donated to 'new build' locomotives. No 5227 has also 'lost' some parts, but is on display at Didcot as an ex-Barry locomotive. Please see various photographs of these 3 locos on the website.

Select List of Locos to view the complete list of locomotives. Click on 'More' to display an enlarged photograph of the locomotive. Then scroll down to view more images of that locomotive - from 10 to 40 images of many locomotives taken from 2008 to date, in many locations, are included. Additional photographs are being added regularly. Alternatively, use the 'Search' option on the Menu to locate any particular locomotive.

Please let Peter Pascoe know by Email (below) of any inaccuracies or changes needed which you may identify.

STOP PRESS: Wanted 2016 photos of GWR locomotives for consideration for inclusion on this website. If you would like your GWR Steam Engine photo on this site, please Email to peterpascoe@sky.com
