Departmental Units

Tractor Unit 951070


This is a departmental unit which never was.

Two Class 207 motor cars were earmarked to be used as tractor unit but the conversion was cancelled.

The vehicles involved were 60135 (97906) & 60138 (977907) and the idea was for the multiple control system to be modified so it could work in multiple with EMU's.

Both vehicles were purchased by Hastings Diesels Ltd for spares, 60135 was broken up at St Leonards and 60138 was later sold on and now resides at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway

A couple of shots taken in St Leonards in 2004.

Below is 60138 or Ajax as it was had named by depot staff
