Covering the English Electric Type 4 ‘D200’ class, later known as BR Class 40, these were amongst the first ‘pilot scheme’ diesel-electric locomotives that were introduced by BR back in 1958. Although heavy and underpowered compared with later designs, they were put to good use on passenger and freight workings and were based in all regions except the WR and SR. The history of the class from inception to date of publication has been captured in just over 200 black-and-white photographs, plus some in colour, in this well-known book by John Whiteley and Gavin Morrison, published in 1978.
