Railway Era System

Era Keys

We have marked as many items as we can with an era symbol. This should aid you in matching up items of rolling stock to get authentic trains , if that is what you are trying to replicate.

1 - 1804 - 1875 Pioneering
2 - 1875 - 1922 Pre-Grouping
3 - 1923 - 1947 The Big four (LMS, GWR, LNER and SR)
4 - 1948 - 1956 British Railways Early Crest
5 - 1957 - 1966 British Railways Late Crest
6 - 1967 - 1971 British Railways Blue Pre Tops
7 - 1971 - 1982 British Railways Blue Tops
8 - 1982 - 1994 British Railways Sectorisation
9 - 1995 onwards Post Privatisation

These dates are only given as guides. Quite often stock would have carried over from a previous era into the next one. For example, a private owner wagon would not have been painted BR Grey straight away and would, therefore, carry its era 3 livery into the era 4 period.

It is always best to find pictures of the period you are modelling as this will give you an idea of what stock was around.
