Rail Data > Data > Codes > Pools
Pool codes are used to allocate items of rolling stock to a particular user, depot, traffic or route. 4-digit numerical codes have been used for wagons since at least the early 1980s, while 4-letter codes were devised for locos, units and coaching stock when BR was sectorised in the late 1980s.
The meaning of an individual code could change over time, and the table on this page shows the last known description for each code. To see earlier descriptions, view the pool detail page by clicking on the link in the Pool column.
My sources of information on this subject are somewhat limited. If anyone is able to assist by sending me lists of pool codes (particularly wagon pool codes, from any date), I would be very grateful.

To give an example, searching for 'Immingham' will not return pools where the official description uses 'IMMINGHM'
