One of the first generation of diesel-mechanical multiple units - Class 121 DMU Pressed Steel Suburban units
Contemporary and Heritage-Preserved, Diesel, Diesel-Electric and Electric Locomotives
Class 121 Pressed Steel Single Units and Driving Trailers were built from 1960-1961. Class 121 units have mechanical transmission and are non-gangwayed single cars with two driving cabs plus driving trailers used for augmentation. The Class 121 driving trailers were later fitted with gangways for coupling to power cars of other classes.
Class 121 DMUs were used by Chiltern Railways on peak-hour Aylesbury - Princess Risborough services and by Arriva Trains Wales on Cardiff Queen Street -Cardiff Bay shuttle services. The maximum speed of Class 121 DMUs is 70 mph.
Class 121 DMU unit 121032, carriage number 55032, was once in 'Departmental' use as 960 002 (977722)
