British Rail Class 76. Locomotive no. E26055 at Sheffield Victoria in 1969. The British Rail Class 76, also known as Class EM1 (Electric Mixed-Traffic 1), is a class of 1.5kV DC, Bo+Bo electric locomotive designed for use on the now-closed Woodhead Line in Northern England.
The prototype, LNER No. 6701 was completed at Doncaster Works in 1941 to a design by Sir Nigel Gresley, but electrification of the Woodhead Route together with construction of 69 similar units was delayed by the Second World War. It was tested on the few sections of 1500 V DC lines owned by the LNER but had not worked any great distance by 1947 when it was loaned to Dutch Railways to help with their post war shortage of locomotives
