The British Rail Class 59 is a type of Co-Co locomotive designed for heavy freight work and was introduced between 1985 and 1995. These locomotives were born from the satifaction of the EMD SW1001 shunter and the twin cab design of the Class 58 locomotives. These were the first privately owned diesel locomotives to operate regularly on the British main line.
