    Hi Guys
    Not sure if this is the correct part of the forum to post this but couldn't think of another.
    As some you know I run an on-line search facility that includes a stock list download page in A4 landscape format.
    Download Page
    Many railway websites already have their own stock details, some excellent, however this is generally just a visual display. I would like to offer a Word document to those who's websites have the ability to upload documents. This will enable future visitors/enthusiasts to download/print a stock list report prior to visiting the line.
    If anyone is interested please let me know.
    Cheers
    Steve

    An excellent reference and you are to be complimented for tracking down all those box vans remainin on farms. Your details for the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway look spot-on.

    Absolutely marvellous!

    Thanks nferguso.
    The EVR stock details are testament to those volunteers who have always helped me with queries here in the past.

    I had a quick look at your Download Page, but couldn't see which number to d/l for Kent?

    Shame that people require a winzip programme to unzip the files. Could this not be downloadable in PDF format?

    Look at the South East Region for Kent

    Well spotted. Should be Area 2 but looks like I forgot to add Kent to the DB Filter Query. Oops! I'll ask Mick to send me the Live DB back and sort this in the next few days.
    ref PDF Format. I've never looked at this option & don't know how to do this without looking it up. Can you still print these as a normal document?
    Cheers

    Is there any chance of adding N.Ireland into the DB? (We are part of the UK after all!)

    Hi Keith
    NI is indeed part of the UK & worthy of inclusion. Info & time is my problem here. I have an extensive report from 2 years ago covering all of NI but I can't as yet, validate all the entries. I still have too much to do elsewhere at the moment, a continual problem, but NI will be included in the future.
    Cheers
    Steve

    Hi Guys
    A new Area 2 South East report is now available from the download page, including locations in Kent !!! ref a PM I had: all the IOWSR stock is now listed.
    Area 5 Home Counties has also been updated as Berkshire is now in here, ex South East.

    Thanks Steve,

    I realise that the DB is a lot of work, I look forward to seeing the NI section.
    Let me know if I can help

    Cheers,

    Keith
