Western Region Diesel Hydraulics in Preservation



In this book, author Fred Kerr presents a selection of high-quality colour photographs of former Western Region diesel hydraulic locomotives in preservation, featuring images of locomotives on the main line as well as at heritage railways around Britain.

During their final years in main line use, Western Region Diesel Hydraulic locomotives proved popular with enthusiasts, leading to numerous examples being saved from the scrapyard by preservation groups and heritage railways.

Photographs are arranged in chapters, each covering a different type of locomotive:

  • Class 14
  • Class 35
  • Class 42
  • Class 52
  • Maybach Miscellany

Each chapter consists of an introduction to the featured locomotive type, followed by a selection of colour images taken over the last two decades. Each photograph is accompanied by a caption. Hardback. Over 240 colour photographs. 128 pages.
