An 0-8-2T locomotive number 117 at Doncaster works, 1903. This locomotive is covered in advertisements. It was thought that the sides of locomotives were a good place to have adverts as so many people saw them, especially in urban stations. This locomotive was built at Doncaster works. The works, known as the 'Plant Works', opened in 1853. The steam locomotives numbers 4468 "Mallard" and 4472 "Flying Scotsman" were both built at Doncaster works.
