The names listed above are
the names ORIGINALLY allocated to the classes. All the links above were current in 1971 except for 2 of the
classes (classes 50 and 87).
There are images of some
the nameplates in all of the sections apart from classes 40 and
42/43. Follow the links to view.
The class 50s and the class
were named in the late 70's. I have shown these as
links below as I have fond memories of the class 50s and could not
lave out the 87s as they supported the 86s on
the London - Glasgow route via Birmingham New Street - my local
Many of the locomotives no
longer exist and some have been renamed, once or even twice as in
the case of the Class 47s. Where this has happened I have
indicated their name in green if the locomotive was in service
I have used decided to order
the locos using their original numbers. Their later numbers
are also shown, where appropriate.
