Locos in Film
You might have seen the IMDB movie website that lists actors that can be seen in various films and TV series. Similarly IMCDB exists to list motor vehicles used in films. On one forum discussion has been taking place on locos in films and if this results in a similar site we will provide a link so that you can search for Leeds built locos in film. One film reference is Lion in Titfield Thunderbolt. (The content of external websites is beyond our control.)

Many of the books/periodicals listed are purely dedicated to the Leeds Locomotive building industry. Others are listed as there are sections within that give details about products produced within the city of Leeds. If you are interested in finding out how the GPCS works in Austerity tanks see the full description in the English version of La Locomotive a Vapeur.
