The Class 122 DMUs were built mainly for use on the London Midland Region of British Rail, though some were also used in Scotland. Class 122 DMU units were used on a variety of lightly used rural lines, many of which were closed during the Beeching Axe in the 1960s. Routes served by Class 122 units included the Stourbridge Town (Western Region) and St Albans Abbey branch lines (London Midland Region), as well as local services between Dundee and Arbroath (Scottish Region).
