Workers manufacturing carriage lighting at Doncaster works. Carriages were usually lit with gas. However, electric lighting was becoming more common as gas lighting was dangerous and could potentially cause a fire. Doncaster works, known as the 'Plant Works' opened in 1853, making and repairing locomotives and rolling stock for the Great Northern Railway. At this time the works employed around 3500 workers.
