For example, it was not unusual for the Stanier 'Black 5' and in particular the new BR Standard classes, to be found working hundreds of miles from the Region they were initially allocated. Colin was born in the North East and spent his grammar school years living in Corbridge, Northumberland.He has started research for a plan to build a model of Corbridge station between Newcastle and Hexham in its heyday of the 1920s through into the 40s when it actually had a significant level of traffic serving local freight, 3 timber yards, a gasworks and so on.Over the years, the Regional boundaries diminished significantly, including the North Eastern Region which was absorbed into the ER in 1967.As a result, many locomotives (from an operational standpoint) worked beyond their arbitrary Regions, so in many ways it is meaningless to classify any particular class of locomotive as belonging to any one of the six Regions during the transition from steam. I have recently been contacted by Colin Mason, who currently works and lives in Japan.Following his adventure at Kings Cross he acquired an Ian Allan abc Combined Volume and started collecting engine numbers.His home town station of Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast was pretty quiet in the winter but as soon as Easter arrived the steam action would kick-off with regular excursions bringing holidaymakers from exotic origins in the West Riding of Yorkshire and beyond.

A total of 20,211 steam locomotives were taken into State ownership consisting of: 1,838 from the SR, 3,856 from the GWR, 6,525 from the LNER, and 7,805 from the LMSR.

The new renumbering scheme also embraced a small number of diesel locomotives (mostly 0-6-0 shunters belonging to the former LMSR and LNER) which were allocated the numbered series in the 10,000s, while a small quantity of electric and gas turbine locomotives appeared in the 20,000s.

Finally, the batch of WD 'Austerity' freight locomotives, built to Ministry of Supply design, and working on loan at the time of nationalisation, were purchased by BR in early 1949 and renumbered in the 90,000s(Above-Below) Opened on , the 14-mile single-track Nidd Valley Railway diverged from the Harrogate-Ripon line at Ripley Junction and ran along the Nidd Valley to a single-platform terminus at the foot of the main street at Pateley Bridge.

On the map he has marked some circles showing (1) a timber yard that no longer exists of which he would like to get pictures of (2) a building marked on the map at the southern edge of the yard west of the bridge of which he would like to find out the function (3) the location of the over-track signal box location that he would like to get more detailed pictures of (4) the Corbridge Gas Company gas works where he would like to get more details, maybe from pictures - especially he is wondering if it was served by what appears on the map to be a short siding or if the coal was carted round from the coal drops on north side of the tracks. Any advice on online locations where suitable photo archives might exist (probably not ones that a search engine normally finds) will be much appreciated.
