Green Diesel Era

£7.99

Available in Stock

The 1955 British Railways Modernization Plan called for the replacement of steam locomotion, and British Railways placed 'pilot scheme' orders for diesels with a number of British manufacturers. The lack of standardization caused logistical problems and some of the many different models built proved unreliable or unsuited. All the major first-generation diesel locomotives, produced by English Electric, Metropolitan-Vickers and others, are featured in this collection of mostly colour photographs.
