Class 76 – Locomotives that had SHG removed by 7/81

Diesel Dilemmas – top page


The majority of texts referred to state that the listed locomotives were fitted with SHG from new. However the book EM1 & EM2: An Illustrated Historical Review of the Manchester, Sheffield, Wath, Electric Locomotives-76s & 77s (2014) by John Hooper (Book Law publications) suggests this was not the case The table below shows the information contained in the book. Further comments welcomed.
