DB 975664 / 975637 were known as the 'Stourton Saloon' (they were based mainly at Stourton Sidings in Leeds). Latterly they carried the then Provincial "Sprinter" livery, as pictured in Lincoln Central during August 1986, Graeme Phillips Collection.

DB 975349 / 539 outlasted the last service vehicles, based at Heaton and known as the 'York Saloon'. They were used for route learning and line inspections.

977191 sat out of use for at least 12 years until 2000 at Crewe before it was finally moved for disposal.
