127 DMU

Unknown Date

The vehicle is identified as a BSO (Brake Second Open) from a QUAD set. The vehicle was new 6-10-59. The biggest clue to it's identity is the weight of 40tons, which makes it a Class 127. Note the lining ended in a semi-circle rather than being squared off at the corners. Taken possibly at Ampthill before closure circa 1959. Photo by Jim Lawrence. Ian McDonald Collection.

The 7.20pm St. Pancras - Bedford (Midland Road) service is seen north of Harlington on June, 20th 1965. It is operated by a four-car Derby-built DMU with Rolls-Royce 238hp engines and hydraulic transmission, which would later be known as a Class 127. The coupling code for the type was still blue square at this point. Michael Mensing.
