Expert and enthusiast in the field John Scott - Morgan brings readers an informative and beautifully illustrated look into one of the three classes of main-line diesel-hydraulic introduced for service on the Western Region; the Hymeks. The 'Hymeks' were built between 1961 and 1964 and constructed by Beyer-Peacock of Manchester. The locomotives saw use widely over WR metals (although based at Bristol Bath Road depot), on both passenger and freight services. Amongst duties undertaken were banking turns on Lickey, replacing the steam locomotives that had previously fulfilled the role. However, with the rationalisation of the railway industry post-Beeching and with the policy of withdrawing diesel-hydraulic locomotives, the class was scheduled for early withdrawal, being taken out of service between 1971 and 1975. A number survive in preservation. This impressive new title is an all-colour album featuring the class and, like the other volumes in the all-colour series,includes sections of descriptive text alongside up to 100 superb illustrations. A must have for any rail enthusiast!
