The class 58 design represented a major departure from the conventional British load-bearing carbody construction. The US road-switcher style of structural underframe was adopted, the narrow bodyshell designed to protect the engine and electrical systems, but with doors providing excellent access from both sides for maintenance. The bogies also featured a simplified system of pedestal type suspension units without compensating beams, suitable for 60mph running,
The first locomotive of the class were delivered to British Rail during early 1983 and entered service that same year. A total of 50 locomotives were built and carried serval different liveries during their lifetime. Despite expectations of a lengthy service life during 2002 EWS decided to withdraw all examples of the type after only 19 years in service. Subsequently 32 were hired abroad with a few examples scrapped or entering preservation, including one locomotive which will donate its' underframe and some systems to the LMS 10000 project.
