Artist's Description

BR Class 14 locomotive at Peak Rail, South Rowsley in Derbyshire.

The British Rail Class 14 is a type of small diesel-hydraulic locomotive built in the mid-1960s. Twenty-six of these 0-6-0 locomotives were ordered in January 1963, to be built at British Railways Swindon Works.

They are known as ‘Teddy Bears’ by enthusiasts, following a comment by Swindon Works’ foreman George Cole who quipped “We’ve built the Great Bear, now we’re going to build a Teddy Bear!”

D9524 was re-powered under the ownership of BP Grangemouth – it was later re-powered again under the ownership of the Scottish RPS who, following BR practice, gave it a number of 14 901. It now operates with a Rolls-Royce DV8TCE (640 bhp). This engine may have been originally installed in one of the two Rolls-Royce engined Class 17 Claytons.
