Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The British Rail Class 24 diesel locomotives, also known as the Sulzer Type 2, were built from 1958 to 1961. One hundred and fifty-one of these locomotives were built at Derby, Crewe and Darlington, the first twenty of them as part of the British Rail 1955 Modernisation Plan. This class was used as the basis for the development of the Class 25 locomotives. The final survivor, no. 24081, was withdrawn from Crewe depot in 1980. The main power for the Class 24 was the Sulzer 6LDA28 diesel engine - denoting 6 cylinders; Locomotive use; Direct fuel injection; 28 cm bore cylinders. This was effectively an off-the-shelf purchase with small changes to bearings, injectors and some other minor items.show more
