The steam locomotives of British Railways were used by British Railways over the period 1948–1968. The vast majority of these were inherited from its four constituent companies, the "Big Four". In addition, BR built 2,537 steam locomotives in the period 1948–1960, 1,538 to pre-nationalisation designs and 999 to its own standard designs

These figures also include urban/suburban mass-transport systems, as well as lines which are not used for passenger services. Bahrain - under construction as part of Gulf Railway.

An invention that changed the world was 200 years old in 2004. Britain celebrated the bicentenary of the steam railway locomotive with a year-long events programme, but it was not an engineering giant such as James Watt or George Stephenson that was fêted. The man who first put steam engines on rails was a tall, strong Cornishman described by his schoolmaster as obstinate and inattentive. But it is North East England that is known as the birthplace of railways for here, around Newcastle, the world’s first tramways were laid and, later, the world’s first public railway between Stockton and Darlington steamed into life. At Shildon in County Durham, a £10 million permanent Railway Village is taking shape, to open in the autumn, the first out-station of the National Railway Museum.

Thank you West Coast Railways for making me so happy. Truly is the Best Train Trip in the World. This is such a great day out fantastic scenery from start to finish. And when the Glenfinnan viaduct comes up it's goosebumps on goosebumps such a fantastic experience.
