PROTOTYPE

The British Rail (BR) Class 35 is a class of mixed-traffic B-B diesel locomotive with hydraulic transmission. Because of their Mekydro-design hydraulic transmission units, the locomotives became known as the Hymeks. They were numbered D7000-D7100.

One hundred and one were built between 1961 and 1964 by Bayer Peacock (Hymek) Ltd, a joint venture company between Bristol Siddeley Engines (supplier of the Maybachengine used), Stone-Platt Industries (Supplier of the Mekydro Hydraulic transmission) and Bayer Peacock & Co (manufacturer of the locomotive).

The Hymek continued into service until 1975 by which time their passenger and freight duties were replaced in the main by the more powerful Class 52 Western and the diesel-electric Class 37. Four Hymeks survive into preservation.
