British Rail Diesels presents a wide collection of photographs illustrating a lost world on the nation's railways. Mick Hymans' interest in diesels began with resentment as they phased out his beloved steam engines, but over time these once-despised locomotives proved themselves and now enjoy a vast following in their own right. Including every class of diesel introduced on the railways up to the early 1960s, this book covers the whole railway system from the North of Scotland and Wales right down to Cornwall. It covers every early class of diesel, including the many shunters and prototypes produced to replace steam, showing every livery and alteration made, providing a wonderful resource to modelers, as well as enabling enthusiasts to look back fondly on the diesels that replaced steam locomotion and which themselves have mainly been consigned to the scrap heap.

The first of the English Electric Type 1 design, what we now know as the Class 20s, appeared in June 1957. With their distinctive 'chopper' engine sound, these single-cabbed locomotives soon gained a reputation for rugged reliability brought about by their simplicity and use of tried and tested components. British Rail Class 20 Locomotives looks back at the operations of these fine locomotives since 1957, covering their varied workings and duties, regional use and railtour operations. The book also covers the technical aspects and specifications of the locomotives, including liveries and detailing. This book will be of great interest to all railway and diesel loco enthusiasts. Fully illustrated with 195 colour photographs.

In 2005, Ian Allan Publishing published Diesel Pioneers, which provided a complete overview of the development of the early diesel classes inherited by BR and those that were developed as part of the Modernisation Plan of 1955. This lovely new book takes the subject forward and covers the standard diesel locomotive designs that were made during the early 1960s which include the Class 33s, the 37s, the 47s, the Hymeks, the Westerns and the Deltics as well as the less successful Claytons. A number of these early classes proved successful and were built in significant numbers between their introduction and the ceasing of production in the late 1960s. Many of the most productive classes were, in fact, not to arise from the Modernisation Plan but were developed from the early 1960s onwards and this book covers these in detail. The book explores the background to the development of each class and provides an extended overview of diesel locomotive development of this period. Illustrated with unseen photographs, many with colour throughout, this book will appeal to the growing numbers of diesel modellers and enthusiasts.
