An 8F class 2-8-0 locomotive number 48104 and a class 5 4-6-0 locomotive number 44662 inside Holbeck engine shed, Leeds, by Eric Treacy. At this time steam traction was starting to be phased out in favour of diesel and electric locomotives. Workers at locomotive depots were having to learn how to service these new types of traction. Holbeck shed closed to steam traction in 1967, and was demolished in 1970.
