This book provides an in-depth history of the North British diesel-electric Type 2 locomotives which were constructed by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow during the late-1950s / early-1960s for use on the Eastern and Scottish Regions of British Railways.

"Despite efforts to improve their poor performance in traffic, by both engine refurbishment or complete replacement, these locomotives were all withdrawn from service by the end of 1971.

"Using significant quantities of previously unpublished material, dramatic new insights are revealed about both the original Class 21s and the rebuilt Class 29s, including detailed research into the whole rebuilding decision-making process, as well as providing fully dated information about works visits, periods in storage, detail difference modifications and livery changes.
