This programme takes a look at the some of the 2,500 steam engines built by British Railways between 1948 and 1960, and operated in Britain until the end of steam in 1968. Now many are thankfully preserved on railways across the country ranging from small shunters to large express and freight locos. Many of these were based on the old constituent railway companies, but British Railways did evolve its own designs which feature in the programme such as the Britannia Class, designed for express passenger work and the Standard Class 4 tank, which were used primarily on commuter services. The most famous loco of this time is Standard Class 9F number 92220 Evening Star - preserved as the last steam loco to be built by British Railways, in 1960. Locos based on the North Yorkshire Moors, Keighley and Worth Valley, Great Central Railway, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire and the West Somerset Railways, as well as on the main line are included in the programme
