British Railways Diesel Hydraulic Type 4 2000HP built for the Western Region by North British Locomotive Company using the same basic body shell as Swindon's Class 42, powered by 2 MAN L12V18 diesel engines with Voith L306r Hydraulic transmission. 33 locos built, class introduced in 1960. Hydraulics were declared 'non standard' by BRB which meant that they were all withdrawn by the end of 1971, all being scrapped.
