Dieselloks - British Railways Class 20-29: Bücher

Bücher zur Geschichte, Typen und Technik der Diesellokomotiven der Klassen 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27 und 29 der British Railways.

British Rail Class 20 Locomotives

The first of the English Electric Type 1 design, what we now know as the Class 20s, appeared in June 1957. With their distinctive 'chopper' engine sound, these single-cabbed locomotives soon gained a reputation for rugged reliability brought about by their simplicity and use of tried and tested components.

"British Rail Class 20 Locomotives" looks back at the operations of these fine locomotives since 1957, covering their varied workings and duties, regional use and railtour operations. The book also covers the technical aspects and specifications of the locomotives, including liveries and detailing.

Class 20 Locomotives

A pictorial tribute to the Class 20 locomotive. 228 of these single-cab locos were built from 1957 onwards by English Electric and Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns. They were part of the BR modernisation plan to replace steam.

There are two different front-end designs, the first carry headcode discs on the cab-front and nose end, while the rest carry headcode boxes on both ends. They were mostly used on the Midland, Eastern and Scottish region, but did venture further afield.

Withdrawals started in the early 1980s, with most being taken out of traffic by the mid-1990s. Fifteen were sold on to DRS, who rebuilt them as Class 20/3, and most of these locos are still in service.
Hunslet Barclay also operated six for use on weed-killing trains, but these were also later sold to DRS. Quite a number were preserved, and there are also a number in industrial service. Some are still main-line registered, the main contract being the delivery of London Underground stock.

The Class 20s were a success story from the beginning, and despite only being single-cabbed, they were regularly to be found running in pairs, making them far more efficient.

Class 20 Locomotives in Scotland

English Electric Class 20 locomotives once operated over virtually the entire rail network of Scotland. They were introduced to the Highlands in the late 1950s and are probably best remembered for working local freight traffic or working in pairs pulling coal trains in the Central belt.

This book covers Class 20s from the BR era up to recent freight operations, and many locations across the country are featured.
With a wealth of previously unpublished images, this book will delight Scottish rail enthusiasts.

The North British Type 2 Bo-Bo Diesel-Electric Classes 21 & 29 - Design, Development and Demise

This book provides an in-depth history of the North British diesel-electric Type 2 locomotives which were constructed by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow during the late-1950s / early-1960s for use on the Eastern and Scottish Regions of British Railways.
Despite efforts to improve their poor performance in traffic, by both engine refurbishment or complete replacement, these locomotives were all withdrawn from service by the end of 1971.

Using significant quantities of previously unpublished material, dramatic new insights are revealed about both the original Class 21s and the rebuilt Class 29s, including detailed research into the whole rebuilding decision-making process, as well as providing fully dated information about works visits, periods in storage, detail difference modifications and livery changes.

Class 25, 26 and 27 Locomotives in Scotland

NEU

This comprehensive volume delves into the history of the British Rail Class 25, 26, and 27 locomotives, introduced in 1956 and initially stationed at Eastfield Depot in Glasgow and Haymarket Depot in Edinburgh. Recognized as Type 2s, these locomotives served both passenger and freight functions.
Over time, the Class 26 fleet specialized in coal transport in the Ayrshire region. Notably, certain Class 27 locomotives underwent conversion for push-pull operations on the busy Glasgow Queen Street-Edinburgh route from 1971 until their cessation in 1980.

Covering the entirety of the BR era and extending into the privatization era and beyond, this book meticulously explores the contributions of all three classes. Operating extensively throughout Scotland, these locomotives played a vital role, with several now preserved at heritage lines across the country.

Class 26, 27 and 33 Locomotives

The 1955 British Rail Modernisation Plan identified a need for small, lightweight diesel locomotives and the Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Company, based in Smethwick in the West Midlands, was awarded the contract to build the Class 26, Class 27 and Class 33 locomotives.
All were built with Sulzer engines, and the Class 26 and 27 locomotives were split between the Scottish, Eastern and Midland regions, before being concentrated north of the border.
The Class 33 locomotives were built for the Southern Region.

All three classes were comfortable on freight as well as passenger turns. The locomotives were built to last, with the Class 27s the first to be completely withdrawn in 1987 and the last Class 26 taken out of service in 1993. Some Class 33 locomotives remain active on the main line.

This book shows the three different classes at work and on shed, and also covers the classes into preservation.

The Metropolitan-Vickers Type 2 Co-Bo Diesel-Electric Locomotives - From Design to Destruction

This book provides an in-depth history of the Metropolitan-Vickers diesel-electric Type 2 locomotives, more frequently known collectively as the "Co-Bo's" due to their unusual wheel arrangement. Twenty locomotives were constructed during the late-1950s for use on the London Midland Region of British Railways.
The fleet was fraught with difficulties from the start, most notably due to problems with their Crossley engines, this necessitating the need for extensive rehabilitation work during the early-1960s.
Matters barely improved and the option to completely re-engine the locomotives with English Electric units was debated at length, but a downturn in traffic levels ultimately resulted in their demise by the end of 1968 prior to any further major rebuilding work being carried out.

Significant quantities of new archive and personal sighting information, supported by over 180 photographs and diagrams, have been brought together to allow dramatic new insights into this enigmatic class of locomotives, including the whole debate surrounding potential re-engining, their works histories, the extended periods in storage, together with in-depth reviews of the various detail differences and liveries.
