Brush Diesel & Electric Locomotives 1980-2020 (RCTS)

1 In Stock

Brush Traction was set up in 1943 as part of the Electrical Division of Brush Electrical Engineering Co Ltd. Since then it has achieved a world-renowned reputation for locomotive design and has been responsible for some of the most successful locomotives built for both the UK and overseas markets.

In this detailed volume, author George Toms looks at the company’s history in the period from 1980 until 2020. He covers all aspects of the Brush output of diesel and electric locomotives during that period plus the many changes experienced in working practice, management control and ownership of the brand name.

In addition to export orders, this work encompasses the large orders for BR Class 60, Class 92 and Eurotunnel. Later chapters explore the changes in outlook which led to the development of re-engineering as the mainstay of work undertaken by the works at Loughborough.

As well as detailed appendices listing all locomotives built in 1980-2020, Brush Diesel & Electric Locomotives 1980-2020 also includes completely up-to-date tables listing Brush locomotives built pre-1980 (Class 31, 47 etc). 184 pages with 73 photographs. Hardback.
