Class 14 Paxman 0-6-0 Diesel Hydraulic Locomotives

Class 14 diesel hydraulic locomotives were built by British Railways at Swindon from 1964-1965. Class 14 locos have a maximum tractive effort of 30910 lbf (135 kN) and have a maximum speed of 40 mph. Class 14 locomotives are fitted with Voith hydraulic transmission from a Paxman Ventura 650 mph (485 kW) engine. Many were sold of by British Railways but a good few of these Class diesel locomotives have been preserved on heritage railways.

Class 14 diesel-hydraulic 0-6-0 locomotive D9523 (BR loco D 9523), built at Swindon in 1964. These relatively small (medium sized? quite a high tractive effort) Class 14 diesel-hydraulic locomotives were built for marshalling yard shunting and hauling short distance freight trains. Class 14 locos have a nearly central cab with good bonnet views in either direction, hence easily driven in any direction.

Class 14 locomotives are powered by a Paxman 6-cylinder Ventura engine giving a power rating 650 bhp (485 kW), which is connected to a Voith hydraulic transmission and Hunslet gearbox. The axles are connected by coupling rods which are driven by a jackshaft located under the cab, between the second and third axles (you can see this class 14 arrangement in the profile image above.
