2-8-0 locomotives under construction in AE shop, 1943

In this image, War Department 2-8-0 locomotives are shown under construction in AE shop at Swindon Works in May 1943. In order to meet the demand for locomotives for war work, the War Department placed an order in 1942 for the GWR to build 80 LMS 8F Class Stanier 2-8-0 freight locomotives, for use both at home and overseas. The short supply of raw materials meant that the building of these locomotives took longer than expected, and this image shows a number of the first batch of 27 engines under construction, over a year after the first order was placed
