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.

Gateshead Works 1948 - 1952

Gateshead Works
Gateshead Works was built for the Stockton & Darlington Railway between 1862 and 1863, but within a few months
had been taken over by the North Eastern Railway, which made it the headquarters of its Locomotive Department.
At first Gateshead operated as the NER's main works, producing twice as many locomotives as the nearby
Darlington Works. In 1908, however, Darlington produced its first large passenger engines and two years later
new building ceased at Gateshead, where new development was restricted by railway tracks and the River Tyne.
Gateshead Works, which from 1910 onwards concentrated on heavy maintenance, was closed in 1959.
