Class 111

A more powerful variation of the Class 101/2. Four power / trailer sets were delivered to the LMR Manchester area, followed by ten 3-car sets for the NER at Bradford, and a further ten 3-car sets for the NER, this last batch easily identifiable by a four-character headcode box.

In the '80s most power cars had one engine removed as a maintenance / cost saving measure and formed into power twins. With 360hp they were still more powerful than a conventional power / trailer set.

All were withdrawn by 1989, just one buffet car was preserved.

Non-Passenger Use
