There were two traction motors each being powered by one generator thus simplifying the electrical system. Production began in 1956 and ended in 1965 Eventually 102 Janus locomotives were built: mostly for the British steel industry but other customers included Imperial Chemical Industries (12 locomotives) the Port of London Authority (10) and the National Coal Board (7).In 2008 23 were still in industrial service and seven had entered preservation. The name Janus is from the two-faced god Janus: the locomotive was symmetrical with two faces. The similarity in power and speed would indicate that this type of locomotive could have been use in a similar role to the British Rail Class 08 shunter. In recent years Class 08 shunters owned by EWS have replaced Janus locomotives on some industrial railways. One model was loaned to BR for tests.
