Within each book the sheds are listed alphabetically by their names (as they appeared in the books of the time).
Within each shed all the steam locomotives allocated to that shed are listed in numerical order together with the dates that they were there, even if it was only for one month. Thus this publication shows more than those which just have "snapshots" of allocations for specific dates.
Using an alphabetical list gets around the problem that sheds changed code (and sometimes Region) over time. Where sheds moved from one region to another, the full information for the 18 years is repeated in both relevant books – for example Exmouth Junction appears in both the Southern and Western books with allocations in full from 1950 to 1966. For cross reference purposes, a full list of BR codes and the sheds they applied to over which dates is included at the end of each book.
