Cl 40, 50 and DP2 used LMS designed engines and Peak Cl 44-46 used cab design from the famous 10000 and 10001. Our first generation DMU's owe much to the 1938 80000-2 LMS railcars. And, of course, our Cl 08 and 11 bear testimony to the quality of their LMS design 60 years ago. Author Edgar Richards takes readers through the fascinating history of the LMS diesel development.
