Photographs, a collection of approximately 356 silver gelatin glass negatives 6 ½ x 4 ¾ to 12 x 10 ins, from the Nine Elms Works of the London & South Western Railway, featuring locomotives, and the newly completed Eastleigh Works, c 1885-1910.

The Nine Elms collection contains silver gelatin glass negatives from the Nine Elms Works of the London & South Western Railway. The photographs include shots of newly completed locomotives, engines decorated for special occasions, Eastleigh Works and running shed, stations including Waterloo, signalling, the Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway, Waterloo & City rolling stock and a view of the North Eastern Railway headquarters in York.

The first locomotive built at the London & South Western Railway's Nine Elms works was a 2-2-2 single named 'Eagle'. At its peak the works employed about 2400 men, each year building some thirty locomotives and carrying out maintenance work on a further 400 engines. The Nine Elms site, however, was too cramped to meet all the company's needs and could not be expanded because it was hemmed in by the L&SWR's lines into Waterloo Station. In 1891 carriage production was transferred to Eastleigh. 832 locomotives had been built at Nine Elms, and on the closure of the works the site became a major depot.
