Powered by an 8 cylinder Vee two-stroke engine, the horse power of 1200 put them in British Railways type 2 power classification… D5703 + D5710 on the 10.25 Manchester Central - St Pancras No. The maximum tractive effort of 50,000 lbf (220 kN) was unusually high for a Type 2 locomotive but, as there were five (not four) driving axles, the risk of wheelslip was minimal. The 1955 diesel locomotive classesare given in brackets where applicable. The engine used in the A Class was the Crossley HST V8 of 1,200 horsepower (895 KW), relatively untested for railway use although the same engine was used in the 48 Western Australian Government Railways X and XA class locomotives built by Metropolitan Vickers in 1954-6 and the small build of 20 Type 2 Co-Bo locomotives for British Railways (later British Rail Class 28) of 1958–9 In British Rail 'blue', Bo-Bo Class 20 diesel locomotive 20189 at Grosmont on the NYMR. But back to the Class 31 story, and the re-engining leads to the view that the class was as near the perfect tool for BR as it was possible to get IMHO. The locomotives had a Co-Bo wheel arrangement (a 6-wheel bogie at one end, a 4-wheel bogie at the other) – unique in British Railways practice though not uncommon in other countries, notably Japan. Serious consideration was given to re-powering them with English Electric engines, as the electrical and other elements were well-regarded, but ultimately they were scrapped due to being non-standard. Half were shedded at 17A Derby and the remainder at 14A Cricklewood in North London. There was a 6-wheel bogie at one end a 4-wheel bogie at the other end. 20189 came for the 2015 NYMR Diesel Gala and has stayed on through the summer. Over 30 have survived into preservation. They were the last first generation DMUs built for British Railways and were built at Swindon Works, and designed like all Swindon units as inter-city sets.Ten of the four-car sets were built and introduced in 1963. Class 20 20189 was built as D8189 by English Electric at the Vulcan Foundry Works in 1967.

BRITISH RAIL TYPE 2 LOCOS • TOPS Class 20 • TOPS Class 24 • TOPS Class 25 • TOPS Class 26 • TOPS Class 27 • TOPS Class 31 . This affected their route availability, due to the different axle loading at each end of the loco, and made maintenance more complicated. The Class 123 was a design of Diesel Multiple Unit built for British Rail in 1963. Geoff Morris.Possibly the last of the GN men? British Rail used several numbering schemes for classifying its steam locomotive types and other rolling stock, before settling on the TOPS computer system in the late 1960s. The tables below attempt to list the different types and the different classificationsused to describe them as clearly as possible: The units were designed … 2 Device used to to place sand on the rails directly under the wheels to reduce slippage and inprove braking in wet or icy conditions. The Class 28 locomotives were built by Metropolitan Vickers at the Bowesfield works Stockton on Tees in 1958.
