This locomotive was designed and built by the English Electric Co Ltd and incorporated two Napier 'Deltic' diesel engines producing 3300 hp. As the result of this prototype's performance, twenty-two further Deltics were ordered by British Railways to replace fifty-five steam locomotives on the East Coast main line between London King's Cros and Edinburgh.
