The British Rail Class 22 or “Baby Warship” was a class of diesel hydraulic locomotives designed for the Western Region of British Rail and built by the North British Locomotive Company. They were very similar in appearance to the Class 21 diesel-electrics. The nickname Baby Warship related to the similarity in appearance (and internal equipment) to the British Rail Class D20/2 or Class 41 Warship Class.
One locomotive has survived into preservation and is in full working order and can be found at the Scottish Railway Preservation Society .
