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.

  1. Do you oblige some extra space? Obviously you have to stagger your young lady on her birthday with her own specific play range? Then again you oblige a tranquil space just for yourself? Tru Shed is the answer. We at Tru Shed will fabricate for you an impossibly shed suited for your playing point and individual needs. For more snap here Omaha storage sheds

    1. Hi Protik,
      Is it possible to reopen one of the Lincoln train sheds please, running daily as it was in in 1912, 1923, 1948 and/or 1983 please, ideally a different one and period each day of the week, so we can see the Great Northern, Great Central and Midland Sheds at work during interesting and transition periods in their working lives. Not forgetting the Eastern Region standard British Rail TMD best add a 1960s date for that one (Diesel lovers are people too, Electric fans just need time... ). As there are more than 7 separate sheds in time-zones requested now I suggest either a "round robin" system, a lotto or best of all just have the lot going at once! I realise there is a fair amount of research, rebuilding, tracklaying and ideally time travel associated with my request but you do promise the impossible so I thought i'd best ask.
      Yours without the slightest hint of sarcasm
      Doctor B.
