the category 58s have been brought in 1983, and have been an important departure from general construct criteria. The fifty contributors have been outfitted by way of BREL at Doncaster Works, and have been outfitted to a modular layout: BR had one eye at the export industry with this classification of loco.

They have been geared up with a Ruston Paxman 12RK3ACT top mover, which proved very appropriate for his or her major use on merry-go-round coal site visitors. the one challenge the category encountered was once with wheelslip. No. 58050 used to be to turn into the final locomotive to be equipped at Doncaster, as no export orders have been bought for the category. All fifty of the category handed to mainline, and some contributors obtained the blue livery earlier than passing to EWS.
