Class 40 Locomotive

The first Class 40 was unveiled in March 1958 powered by an English Electric 2000 hp engine.

Both the wheel configuration and the design of the bogie were shared with the Class 44, 45 and 46.

The overall length was 69 foot 6 inches with an all up weight of 136 tonnes.

Although this class of loco was made obsolete in 1985, several examples have been saved from the scrap yard by enthusiast groups.
