    This was an experimental 'unit' the findings from which went into the construction of the pacer DMUs (class 140-144). It tested the idea of building trains out of bus parts. Curiously it is preserved in Ireland assuming that Most Irish railways use one of 2 different gauges to the UK (3ft and 5ft 3).
