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.

Inverurie Works 1939 - 1955

D40 4-4-0, ten of the class were built at Inverurie between 1909 and 1921.
Inverurie Works
Inverurie Locomotive Works was built by the Great North of Scotland Railway and opened in 1903. Prior to this date, locomotive repairs were carried out at Kittybrewster, 15 miles to the south. Only ten locomotives were ever built at the Works, these were the V class introduced in 1889 by William Pickersgill and the F class, introduced in 1920 by T. E. Heywood. The two classes were similar, the F class being superheated. They became LNER class D40, with one member, no. 49 Gordon Highlander being preserved. Following the demise of steam, Inverurie continued to repair diesels until closure in 1969.
