Bank Hall Locomotive Depot in 1948: two ex-Lancashire & Yorkshire engines outside the smaller through Shed: ex-L&Y 1F 0-6-0T No. 11535, fitted with dumb buffers and swinging spark-arrestor for working in the Docks; behind it is Class 30 6F 0-8-0 No. 12782. (Beyond can be glimpsed an 8F 2-8-0 with the unusual combination of 'M' as well as the BR initial '4' added to its number).

Recording Locomotive Sightings 1943 - 1968
A generation of enthusiasts recorded the movements of locomotives around the railway system. These records of visits to locomotive depots have been collected and carefully analysed to provide an overall portrait for the period 1943 to 1968. During that period of steam's final years, there was a marked change from the pre-grouping types that still found work at a few depots, to the modern BR designs that worked until the end in 1968. The handling of freight and passenger services was a major undertaking from town and cities, ports, coal mines and factories. All of it traversed the labyrinth of lines that criss-crossed the country. There were numerous 'sheds' spread throughout the length and breadth of the land that provided and serviced the vast army of steam locomotives (20,000 in 1948). Here is just a taste of that history.

Hull Springhead (Hull & Barnsley Railway Part 1)

The Hull, Barnsley & West Riding Junction Railway and Dock Company was opened on 20th July 1885. It had a total projected length of 66 miles but never reached Barnsley, stopping a few miles short at Stairfoot.  The name was changed to The Hull & Barnsley Railway in 1905.  Much of the assets of the railway lay in Hull at three main points: Alexandra Dock where goods were imported and exported by sea, Cannon Street station a goods station and passenger terminus, and Neptune Street where the company had its main goods terminal.

In 1900 the Hull & Barnsley railway carried over 2 million tons of coal and substantial quantities of New Zealand and Australian wool between the Hull docks and the West Yorkshire woollen mills.
