42 Class Co-Co diesel electric

The 42 class GM loco, built by Clyde, had a V-16 two-stroke 1950hp diesel power plant. The two-stroke engines of this class gave the loco a quite distinctive sound, said to stir the hearts of many a devout steam enthusiast! The locos suffered somewhat from being single ended, necessitating turning at terminii. The later 421 class corrected this.
