WD class 2-8-0 locomotive number 90609 with a goods train at Holgate junction, York, by Eric Treacy, 1950. This locomotive is a British Railways standard class 9. In 1949, after the nationalisation of British Railways it was decided to build 12 standard types of steam locomotive rather than have 400 different types, and 900 of these locomotives were built in the 1950s. However, these locomotives were only used for a short period of time as steam was withdrawn by 1968.
