The British Railways Class 41 diesel-hydraulic locomotives were built by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow during 1957 and 1958. All were named after Royal Navy vessels, hence the nameplates each bore a subtitle "Warship Class". They can be regarded as standard 1950s British design of diesel locomotives that consisted of two lightweight, high-revving diesel engines coupled to hydraulic transmissions rather than one large, slow-revving diesel engine and electrical generator set. For this reason they were practically obsolete in design terms before they had left the drawing board.
