Brighton Locomotive Works

Station | History | CabRoad | GoodsTunnel | LocoWorks | Greenway | ToyMuseum

Brighton Locomotive Works (or just, Brighton Works) was one of Britain's earliest steam locomotive manufacturing facilities, and is reckoned to have been responsible for producing over twelve hundred engines, including the E2 Class second-series design used in the illustrations for "Thomas the Tank Engine".

The site of the works can be seen if you exit the Museum, turn left, and look at the newer buildings on Trafalgar Street to the immediate left of the Museum. These occupy a space that was previously railways sidings and the engine works.

As a nod to the site's heritage, many of the roads and walkways in the area are named after railway engineers and designers, or have other railway associations.

In the museum

The museum foyer has a display area devoted to Brighton Locomotive Works, including paintings made by a plant employee.
