Airbus Tianjin uses Chinese test registration B-xxxL starting with B-501L.
It went up to B-520L before being re-used.
Since roughly a year, it has been difficult to follow them with certainty.
Does any of you know reliable independent sources to help tracking them down ? (I do not regard the main list websites as independent sources).

Why so? They seem to be put together by people with lots of insider and knowledgeable sources. It's not like they (we) are paid by the North Koreans to put misleading Chinese test registrations in them.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Eh, eh  
I happen to have sources myself (although not in North Korea), and I have been able to verify that the information put of the lists are not always correct. No blame, nobody's perfect.
That is why I would like to get an independent source. What is important with information is cross-checking, not just forwarding all over what is believed to be true.

Excuse my ignorance, but those aircraft produced in Tainjin receive their test registration in order of construction number/rolling off the production line? IE:

TJ17 4111 B-517L
TJ18 4140 B-518L
TJ19 4159 B-519L
TJ20 4186 B-520L
TJ21 4208 B-501L
TJ22 4220 B-502L

Or is this widely wrong?

Not ignorant at all, you are right.
However MSN 3842 was produced out of sequence getting B-510L, while MSN 3870 got B-506L.
My question was related to knowing (confirmed registration) as opposed to guessing (registration expected out of a system).
