The Class 33 (or ‘Crompton’ as it is popularly known) is a classic British Rail Southern Region diesel locomotive. With 6 authentic liveries and Sea Lion ballast hoppers, the Class 33 Add-On is a classic for British Rail diesel fans.
The Class 33 first appeared British Rail Green livery in 1960 and was deployed in the south east. The first British Rail locomotives to be fitted with a modern electric train heating system, the 33 quickly spread across the whole Southern Region and could occasionally be seen much further afield, mostly running passenger services but also turning its hand to freight operations. A total of 98 examples were built, fitted with 1,550-horsepower Sulzer engines, and they proved popular with crews. The ‘Crompton’ worked throughout the BR Blue and Network Southeast eras, and 40 survived in service up to the privatization of the network and continued working for their new owners, EWS. These have now been retired from service, though a number survive in preservation today.
