Should 6634 (Waterman Trust) be included as loco under restoration? (with suitable note on status etc).

Reordered list

I've reordered the out-of-use list to be in numerical order, as I couldn't really see much of a pattern in the old list. I've also pulled out some locos to put in a private/industrial list, mainly as it felt odd putting Warwickshire in the middle of the GWR locos - possibly part of the reason for the odd ordering.

I've also redirected a number of loco number/name pages, e.g. 1450 and The Flying Pig, so that searching for those terms automatically redirects to the loco's page. I've not done this for most of the out-of-use locos, however. --Danny252 (talk) 09:52, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

GWR Class Numbers

In the interests of standardisation, is there any preference for giving GWR class numbers as "45xx" or "4500"? I'm leaning towards the latter, as it maintains consistency with classes that didn't start on a round number (e.g. 4575, 2884). --Danny252 (talk) 11:21, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

I'd suggest the full numeric version, for example 5101 class is used on both the Wikipedia GWR Locomotives page and the Great Western Archive. In fact unless there is a conflict between those two sites, I'd say use whatever they use.--Robin (talk) 14:45, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Steam locomotives at the SVR for contract work

What should be included where? The boiler shop overhauls and assembles contract boilers for full-size and ng locos. Should they be in here? When they leave (e.g. Dolgoch) which page should have them?--Patrick Hearn (talk) 20:22, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
