LW graphic

Locomotive Wiki ( often abbreviated to LW ) is a volunteer-based, free encyclopedia. The site is hosted by Wikia, and has been since its launch. Locomotive Wiki is a reference work that began on April 3, 2011, aimed at both dedicated railfans and novices alike.


Our goal is to create a "one-stop-shop" for information regarding locomotives, which are our primary focus so all articles should be closely related to locomotives, their operation, their design and their construction.

Happy editing!
