In 1962 English Electric built a single-engined alternative to the Deltic locomotives using the latest 2,700bhp version of the medium-speed 16-cylinder engine used in LMS 10000 and BR class 40 locomotives. Needing powerful diesel locomotives to speed up services over the northern end of the West Coast Mainline pending the completion of electrification BR ordered 50 locomotives, with the body revised to the styling used for the standard type 4, class 47. Designated TOPS class 50 all 50 locomotives were transferred to the Western region in the mid 1970s and were refurbished in the early 1980s, receiving large logo livery. Although all of the class were withdrawn from BR service by the end of 1994 6 of the class have been returned to mainline service working railtours and available as spot hire locomotives.
