Photocopies of the locomotive rosters of railroad and private companies listed in the links below are available from the R&LHS Archives Services. These rosters usually show road numbers, builders and important dimensions; some construction numbers and previous and later owners are identified. Most of the early rosters were copied from company annual reports, while later listings come from railroad ownership records as of specific dates. Only a few are all-time rosters. Most of them are incomplete.
