Diesel and Electric Locomotives for Scrap Hardback
For the very first time, the author presents a detailed survey of all diesel and electric locomotives scrapped on Britain's railways since the start of BR in 1948 to the present day.
While it does not include DMUs and EMUs, the book lists each locomotive class separately, and within each class lists each locomotive built with details of every locomotive scrapped, ie when withdrawn and where sent for scrapping. Comprehensively illustrated throughout in colour and black and white showing examples of each class, recorded when scrapped, the book also contains a separate section showing all preserved heritage diesel and electric locomotives on Britain's railways today. The author has compiled this wealth of information intending this book to be as near a complete record of all diesel and electric locomotives scrapped in the period as possible, and as such it will be the ultimate work of reference for enthusiasts of modern traction.
