Diesel locomotives of British Rail

British Rail operated a large number of different diesel locomotive types. The majority of these were built between 1955 and 1968. Many classes were rushed into service as part of the 1955 Modernisation Plan, but poor reliability and a rapid decline in rail transport meant that some would have very short service lives.
