About This Book

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 new book traction enthusiast and former professional railwayman Andrew Royle takes a clinical look at these early diesel types, discussing their strengths and weaknesses and illustrated with images most of which will never have been seen before.
