Leyland Bus Diesel Multiple units, often run as a single car DMU, Class 153 DMU cars were built 1987-1988 at Workington and converted by Leyland Bus from Class 155 2-car units.
Class 153 DMU units have a maximum speed of 75 mph. Class 153 DMUs started off as two-car units, but most were converted to single-car units in the 1990s by Hunslet-Barclay, but the 2nd driving cab is pretty cramped! Class 153 DMUs can also operate in 3-car units.
The idea was to operate the smallest possible trains on rural branch lines that couldn't justify longer passenger trains.
