This is a pictorial tribute to the British Rail workhorse, the
Class 31. Over 260 of these locos were built by Brush at
Loughborough from 1958 onwards, and they would work on most regions
for the next forty years, with a few examples still working today.
Working both passenger and freight trains, they were a success,
although their original Mirrlees engines would be replaced with
English Electric power units in the late 1960s. They have worn many
different liveries, with most being portrayed in this book.
Unfortunately most have now gone for scrap, however quite a number
have been preserved and can still be seen running on their
preserved lines up and down the country. This book acts as a
personal recollection of a favourite class of loco. For those
fortunate enough to have experienced the Class 31 locos in their
prime, this book will offer a pleasing trip down memory lane. For
those new to the class, it will highlight what you may have missed.
