The British Rail Class 50 is a diesel locomotive built from 1967-68 by English Electric. Fifty of these locomotives were built to haul express passenger trains on the, then non-electrified, section of the West Coast Main Line. Before gaining their 50xxx TOPS numbers these locomotives were known as English Electric Type 4s. The class were nicknamed "Hoovers" (sometimes shortened to "Vacs") by rail enthusiasts because of the distinctive sound made by the inertial air-filters originally fitted. These proved unreliable, and were removed during mid-life refurbishment, but the "Hoover" nickname stuck.
