The rapid dieselisation of Britain's railways meant that many designs of locomotives were introduced from various manufacturers.
Some were highly successful and generated a very enthusiastic following that continues today. British Diesel Locomotives is a superb collection of black-and-white photographs, supported by David's usual meticulously researched and well-written captions, that portrays important locomotive classes.
From the Deltics, the Warships and the Westerns to the Class 50s and 47s and even including the humble but essential multiple units, this book will remind readers of a fascinating evolutionary period for Britain's railways.
