They were originally part of D.T.O. 1/18.

When built 50001- 48 weighed 35 1/2 tons tare, but the substitution of 230hp engines instead of the 150hp engines - with heavier transmission and strengthened frames - added 2 tons to the weight.

When class numbers were introduced in 1973 the power cars became Class 114s and the trailers Class 148s. Later the 148s were later reclassified also as 114s.

In the early '80s surviving vehicles were renumbered from the 500xx series to 530xx and 560xx to 54xxx.
