Modernisation of British Railways commenced in earnest in the post-1955 era.
New diesel designs were rushed off the drawing board into service from various manufacturers, and with varying results.
Some types were destined to work as planned from the start, others after a degree of modification whilst others were, frankly, nothing short of abject failures.
In this book, traction enthusiast and former professional railwayman Andrew Royle takes a clinical look at these early diesel types, discussing their strengths and weaknesses.
Most of the images in the book have never been seen before, making it a must-have for railways enthusiasts.
