Railway Performance Society Magazine - Milepost


The RPS has accumulated an archive of thousands of train journey logs provided by past and present members. We have constructed a database that can locate any log based on date, locomotive type, the route travelled station stops, recorder and country. The database is updated regularly and allows you to locate the current fastest times, which may be more up-to-date than the Fastest Times supplement.

Click HERE to try out a basic version of the database. A more comprehensive version of the database, which allows downloads of actual logs is available to RPS members. If you are logged in, and an RPS member, an extra submenu will appear with a link to the full database.


Rail Performance Data Foundation Logs Database

The Rail Performance Data Foundation (RPDF) owns the database on behalf of the RPS. The database contains almost half a million entries dating from Rocket's performance in the Rainhill Trials in 1829 to the present day. Use of data is free to members and available to others on payment of a small fee. For more information on the database click here
