Please note: The above facts have been researched from many different sources which may or may not be reliable. If you know of a mistake will you please let me know so that it can be corrected. This particularly applies to the location of locomotives which can and do move frequently between heritage Rlys. Thank you.
 
In addition to the BR numbers listed, please note that some of the locomotives also had an 's' prefix added for a short time after nationalization in 1948, such as s21C107 above. Not all those so altered were recorded in the various lists available to me and in some cases the 's' was only on the engine for a very short time. If you know of any preserved SR locomotives (other than those WC/BoBs shown above) that DID have this adornment, please let Syd know.
