After the war, he worked briefly under Ivatt before being transferred to Brighton Works on the Southern Region of the newly nationalised British Railways, replacing Oliver Bulleid. From 1956, the Merchant Navy and West Country/Battle of Britain classes of his predecessor were rebuilt to a design set out by Jarvis, removing all eccentricities that had plagued the maintenance of these locomotives.
