Some Interesting Information from Wikipedia on the Class 42 “Warship” Diesel Locos.
The D800 series diesel-hydraulic ‘Warship Class’, of B-B wheel arrangement, was constructed by two different builders. Those locomotives built by British Railways at Swindon Works were originally numbered D800-D832 and D866-D870. They were allocated Class 42 under the 1968 classification system, while those built by the North British Locomotive Company (NBL) were originally numbered D833-D865 and allocated Class 43.
