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.

Canklow 1956 - 1966

An ex-Midland 2F 0-6-0 at Canklow on 10 April, 1949.  Formerly LMS No. 3156, No. 58238 is a 2F 4'11" 0-6-0 more or less in original form as designed by Johnson in 1876. It is one of the many hundreds of Midland 0-6-0s originated by Johnson, many - but not this one - being modernised by Deeley in the 1900s. In 1949 87 of these survived out of several hundred built originally; No. 58238 was withdrawn in December1957. Copyright Ben Brooksbank and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.
