Class Profile: Experience with the early Type 1 diesels revealed a need for better visibility for loco crews and the result was the Clayton Type 1 with its characteristic centre cab. Unfortunately, the twin-engined design proved to be unreliable and despite 117 examples being built, the class managed less than a decade in service.
