    I note that this is referenced as being previously 51375 - a DMS unit of Class 117.

    Is there anybody who can confirm whether this car was rebuilt as a centre trailer - more akin to the typical TCL centre car of Class 117?

    Thanks in advance, Alec Ralph

    DMS 51375 had cab end removed and corridor end added for use in this water jetting unit,so it is a motor coach without cab control, (non driving motor coach) rather than a 117 trailer composite

    51375 used to run with DMBS 51358 as set L705 from Bletchley TMD prior to withdrawl around 2000.

    Tripcock fitted class 66 locos with RHTT wagons did most of the water jetting on the Chiltern Route this season, this unit I believe still held in reserve at Aylesbury

    Many thanks for the reply. I will be using this information to create this unit for use in MS Train Simulation.

    was described as an IMV Imtermediate motor vehicle, but officially recorded as an MS Motor standard so just dropping the 'D' off DMS.
