The Class 59 Co-Co locomotives were built between 1985 and 1995 by Electro-Motive Diesel. A total of 15 locomotives were built for three different operators.

They were the first privately owned diesel locomotives to operate regularly on the British main line, also the first diesel locomotives built for it in the United States. The first Class 59/0s were ordered by Foster Yeoman and entered service in February 1986 working out their Merehead depot.
