This is a pictorial tribute to the Class 20 locomotive. 228 of these single-cab locos were built from 1957 onwards by English Electric and Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns. They were part of the BR modernisation plan to replace steam.There are two different front-end designs - the first carry headcode discs on the cab-front and nose end - while the rest carry headcode boxes on both ends. They were mostly used on the Midland - Eastern and Scottish region - but did venture further afield.Withdrawals started in the early 1980s - with most being taken out of traffic by the mid-1990s. Fifteen were sold on to DRS - who rebuilt them as Class 20/3 - and most of these locos are still in service. Hunslet Barclay also operated six for use on weed-killing trains - but these were also later sold to DRS. Quite a number were preserved - and there are also a number in industrial service. Some are still main-line registered - the main contract being the delivery of London Underground stock.The Class 20s were a success story from the beginning - and despite only being single-cabbed - they were regularly to be found running in pairs - making them far more efficient....
