Manufacturer description

One of the most successful and long-lived BR 'Pilot Scheme' designs; the initial 20 locomotives were followed by 26 more (Class 26/1) and all were concenĀ­ trated on the Scottish Region from the 1960s. Used on everything from heavy sleeping car trains to local goods trips, the '26s' proved to be reliable, robust and versatile.
