About this book: This book documents the known history of most of the locomotives operated by the War Department, Air Ministry, and Ministry of Defence from 1952 to date. The terms of reference are somewhat arbitrary and so should be explained. Army railways and locomotives in Britain were in 1942 put under the control of No. 1 Railway Detachment (Home), Royal Engineers. From 1945, the name was changed to 1 Railway Group, Royal Engineers, and in 1963 it became 1 Transportation Group, Royal Corps of Transport. In 1952 the War Department had disposed of many of the large fleet of locomotives that it had operated during and after World War 2 and so the remaining locomotives were renumbered into a new series. This is the starting point for our records of War Department locomotives. Several volumes have been published giving comprehensive details of the earlier fleets and are listed in the bibliography. From April 1st 1964, the War Department became the Army Department of the Ministry of Defence, which also included the Navy Department (previously Admiralty) and Air Force Department (previously Air Ministry). Increasingly from this time, the Army Department supplied locomotives to cover shortages in stock at various Navy and Air Force locations, normally using their own locomotives. By 1989, the locomotives and railways at remaining Air Force locations had been fully integrated into the Army Railway Organisation. From 1968, the Army Department commenced a systematic renumbering of their locomotives. and so the stock from this date has been listed again in the new series (still current in 1992). This is a comprehensive work for any fan of MoD locomotives
