Welcome to Locoyard! This website is an ever-changing and regularly (usually daily) updated blog for those interested in Heritage Railway and Scale Modelling. It is provided free of charge voluntarily for the love of it! It started life in January 2012 as a simple blog of model and steam railway enthusiast Dave, but since then things have moved on at a fast pace. Locoyard works in partnership with UK Heritage Hub (who are fast becoming a massive presence and network of Heritage Rail) and now has many authors and contributors.
The Locoyard team is currently composed of:
John Anthony – Contributor (Retired Locomotive Driver)
Alex Caulfield (gwsralex) – Author (Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway Volunteer)
Dave Deane (locoyard) – Locoyard Website Editor and Author
Rowan Jackson (ukheritagehub191) – UK Heritage Hub Editor and Author
Nick Littlewood – Contributor (Vintage Railway Artwork Enthusiast)
Jonathan Malton (1306mayflower) – Author (Enthusiast and videographer)
Simon Shutt (Simon – Brookes Castle) – Author (Enthusiast and Watercress Line Volunteer)
Shirl Turner (fireboxchaser) – Author (Enthusiast, viseographer and volunteer support crew member for 6024 King Edward 1)
Please note that there have also been many other contributors in the past and we are very grateful for their input.
Although we work with many partners already, we are always looking for more. If you feel that you would like to share your experiences and are involved in heritage rail in any way, we will be delighted to hear from you. Please make use of the contact page!
