Metropolitan Vickers’ Type 2 design incorporated a number of unusual features, from its Cross-ley two-stroke diesel engine to its unique five-axle wheel arrange-ment. It was a stylish design too, with its wraparound windscreens. Sadly, the design failed to live up to expectations and although the class was heavily re-built in 1961, BR decided to rid itself of these problematic locomotives and withdrew the fleet in 1968.

Prototype Factfile
Built: 1958/1959 (20 built)
How long did they last? All 20 had been withdrawn by the end of 1968. D5705 was retained for Depart-mental duties until 1985.
Where did they work? Initially used on ‘Condor’ container services, they were relegated to local duties around north-west England.
Can I see one? D5705 is under long-term restoration at the East Lancashire Railway.
