- Morgan brings readers an informative & 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 & 1964 & constructed by Beyer-Peacock of Manchester. The locomotives saw use widely over WR metals (although based at Bristol Bath Road depot) on both passenger & 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 & with the policy of withdrawing diesel-hydraulic locomotives the class was scheduled for early withdrawal being taken out of service between 1971 & 1975. A number survive in preservation. This impressive new title is an all-colour album featuring the class & like the other volumes in the all-colour series

sections of descriptive text alongside up to 100 superb illustrations. A must have for any rail enthusiast!
