Buttons History Locomotives News Enginemen Gallery Memories Books/video No regular updates will be made to the Nine Elms website, but it will continue to be available here.

This website is principally dedicated to London's Nine Elms Locomotive Depot and the Enginemen who worked there between 1838 and 1967. It attempts to enlighten the reader of the life, times and conditions that prevailed during those days by means of a variety of subjects to be found here.

In addition to these first-hand accounts, a collection of complementary photographs provides, where possible, the essential visual links to the numerous anecdotes providing an insight to those of you unfamiliar with those times and indeed perhaps many memories for those of you that actually worked in the environment of a steam locomotive's footplate.
