    Thought it might be of use to help people find out trains they are trying to identify was all. Apologies if this is not the right place or a duplication

    Gen groups are used to notify members of special workings of interest to the theme of the group, often with TOPS lists and other useful information shared. People update them with sightings and other information on the progess of such workings, though this practice reduced considerably when Realtime Trains came into being.

    I used to use them but since RTT came along and there being a TOPS terminal at work, I haven't really actively followed any.

    I don't have anything to do with those sites; I just recommended them to you as potentially being of interest.

    I don't think Llanigraham was suggesting your post was inappropriate. He was just (like me) wondering what a gen list is.

    Thats cool. It may be a useful resource for trying to find unit allocation :)
