The Class 09 diesel shunters were built between 1959 and 1962 to an almost identical specification as the Class 08s; the only difference being the gearing which gave a higher top speed at the expense of lower tractive effort. A total of 26 examples were built, with most allocated to the Southern region at depots such as Ashford, Hither Green, Selhurst, Eastleigh and Old Oak Common. Production of the near-identical 08s had commenced seven years earlier in 1952, with the first example, No. 13000, entering traffic in 1953. Construction continued until 1962 and during the ten year period, 996 locomotives were built making the Class 08 the most numerous of all British locomotive classes. With the addition of the Class 09s and the Class 10s which were also much the same, the type numbered well over a thousand.

Today, nine Class 09s still see active use on the mainline, whilst a further ten survive in preservation.
