About this title


When BR embarked upon their dieselisation programme it probably came as no surprise when the Western, alone among the six BR regions, decided to adopt hydraulic transmission for its main line diesel locomotives in preference to electric which was standard throughout the rest of the system. The result was a number of handsome diesel hydraulic classes with their own distinctive characteristics that formed the backbone of the Western Region fleet, supplemented by diesel electric locomotives of various classes. Using top quality material, this album vividly illustrates the wide range of diesel locomotives and multiple units that could be found on the WR from 1959 through to the era of the High Speed Train.
