  1. Hi there,

    I spend my free time at the Middleton Railway in Leeds where I am a steam loco driver and also help run the photo archives. We are looking at expanding the collection to cover Leeds built locomotives in service around the country and abroad. This blog has some fascinating images and I wondered if we could discuss having a copy for our archive?

    I hope to hear from you.


    • Hi Andy, no problem at all – what would you like? John cws

      • Hi John.

        Well if im really honest, im looking for images of any Leeds built locomotives. We are hoping to build the biggest archive of Leeds locomotives and are in discussion with several other museums and societys. If you want to email me, please feel free and I can tell you more.

        Many thanks,
