Just a general note about sightings as there have been a few things added recently that won't get added because of the way the system works:

no OTP sightings please! there is an excellent website for that sort of thing :)

please submit individual vehicle sightings rather than unit numbers - ie "999600,999601" rather than "950001". This goes for the old sandite units too in the 9300xx series. Unfortunately the system won't pick them up if the set numbers are put in.

please leave off any ADB or RDB prefixes.

lastly - locos used with test trains are not included on the site - such as class 67s or DRS class 37s. The only locos listed are dedicated Network Rail HST power cars and class 31s plus former departmental locos. Hopefully this is up to date but if anyone feels there are any missing that should be there please let me know. As always - this isn't primarily a loco website but here there is some scope for crossover.

thanks
