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.

Darlington Works & Shed 1965 (Part 1)

Following the withdrawal of the major LNER types, Darlington turned its attention to the few remaining steam classes and these included the Stanier 8F 2-8-0s.  Here 48470 was seen running in 1963 on the GW&LNW Joint line between Shrewsbury and Hereford. Copyright Ben Brooksbank and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.
Darlington Works and Shed
1965 was the final full year of operations at Darlington Works. Building of new engines had ceased, but the maintenance
of both diesels and steam continued. The Stanier class 8F 2-8-0s were the most numerous class repaired and they came
mainly from depots in Lancashire and Yorkshire.
