Bachmann Branchline 35-527 Class 121 Single-Car DMU BR Network SouthEast (Revised) | OO Gauge
The British Rail Class 121 is a single-car double-ended diesel multiple unit. 16 driving motor vehicles were built from 1960, numbered 55020–55035. These were supplemented by ten single-ended trailer vehicles, numbered 56280–56289 (later renumbered 54280–54289). They have a top speed of 70 mph, with slam-doors, and vacuum brakes. The driving motor vehicles were nicknamed "Bubble Cars" by some enthusiasts (a nickname endorsed and made official by final passenger service operator Chiltern Railways).
The Class 121 is Britain's longest serving DMU, operating in passenger service for 57 years until 2017.
