Spotters Pocket Books
Platform 5 and NREA detailed spotters books are an excellent source of information about current British locomotives and coaching stock.
Recommended as an enthusiasts' travelling companion and record book.
This thin A6 size book can be easily and comfortably carried in a jacket pocket while still containing a full listing of all locomotives, coaches and unit trains registered with Network Rail in early 2014
To maintain a true pocket size book technical information which is duplicated or readily available elsewhere is left out, just the key data for locomotive classes is provided.
The listing of locomotives and units details of numbers, names, owner/operaters, shed allocations and any specific differences between class members. Multiple unit train formations are listed, allowing unit numbers to be identified from individual car numbers. The small number of locomotive hauled passenger coaches and the fleet of HST coaches are listed with number, allocation and any previous number for vehicles modified/rebuilt/renumbered, plus detail variations from similar vehicles.
