This collection of glass and film negatives is the work of Bagshaw & Son and official photographers based at Doncaster Works. It features construction and repair of locomotives, carriages and wagons for the Great Northern, London & North Eastern and British Railways, together with road vehicles and munitions manufacture during the First World War.
Construction of a locomotive and carriage works for the Great Northern Railway Company began at two sites in Doncaster in 1853, and in 1889 these were followed by a wagon works a short distance away. The first engines were manufactured at Doncaster in 1866 and in the years that followed, many famous locomotives were built and serviced at the works, including Stirling Singles, and in LNER days Sir Nigel Gresley's A4 Pacifics, including the record-breaking Mallard. The Carriage Works produced its first vehicles in 1866 and built all types of carriage, including the UK's first dining car, together with sleeping cars, kitchen cars, and the carriages for the London & North Eastern Railway's 'Flying Scotsman' service. The Wagon Works built vehicles from its opening until the GNR was absorbed by the LNER in 1923, and from then on concentrated on repairs.
This collection represents the work of generations of official photographers, and includes images of locomotive, carriage, and wagon construction, together with views of road vehicles and war work.
