Tribute to the Western Region Hydraulics


Just what it says on the cover, this is a good record of the diesel-hydraulic locomotives the Western Region brought in at dieselisation, in preference to other region's diesl electrics.

The most succesful of  the hydraulic classes were the "Warships", the "Hymeks" and the "Westerns", the other classes, notable thos built by North British having chequered careers, although all the hydraulivs had short lives.
