The first British AC locomotives entered service on the newly electrified East Coast Main Line in 1959. This survey of AC electric traction on British railways, illustrated with over 200 colour photographs, examines each of the types built from the prototype Class AL1 (later Class 81), through the AL6 (86) which clocked up decades of reliable service from the mid 1960s, to the Class 92, designed to run through the Channel Tunnel.
