The second volume of John Gilks Day of the Diesels
covers the years 1975 to 1979, a time when the scene was increasingly dominated by long-lived workhorses such as the Class 40s, Class 47s, the Class 45 and 46 ‘Peaks’ , the Class 37s and the Deltics. First-generation multiple units were still very much in evidence but by the end of the decade were increasingly on borrowed time but as a portent of things to come, the HSTs, introduced in 1976, make their debut.
