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.

Doncaster Works 1958 (part 2)

In 1958, Doncaster began the process of rebuilding the A3 4-6-2 locomotives with double chimneys.  The first batch were at the Works in July of that year.  Here is 60056 'Centenary' with its double chimney in York North shed yard on 11th April 1960.  Copyright Ben Brooksbank and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
Doncaster Works - 1958
Doncaster Locomotive, Carriage and Wagon Works, known locally as ‘The Plant’, was built in 1853 for the former
Great Northern Railway Co. On the amalgamation of the Railway Companies in 1923, Doncaster became one
of the main workshops of the London and North Eastern Railway.
