As with the steam galleries, this section shows portraits of diesel locomotives which have
been residents or visitors to the WSR in recent years, where possible on their own unless I
only have photographs of them with other locomotives or hauling a train. The number of
locomotives is less because of the railway's focus on steam operation. The photographs
are organised in TOPS Class order, regardless of whether the locomotive is carrying the
1957 D-series number or the 1973 TOPS number. Where relevant, the alternative number
will be shown in brackets. Other views will be found in the general views gallery.
