A visit to the Churnet Valley Railway during 2007 to measure up some full sized vehicles along with photographs supplied by members of the CVR provided BMRG with accurate data to produce these models. To those readers with a specialist interest in BRCW DMUs, we suggest a visit to the Birmingham Railcar Workgroup Website.

In the above, the 1973 TOPS classification of DMUs has been used as it would have been in 1977; later the TOPS classes were rationalised and all simply came under the main class heading, e.g. Classes 101/1, 101/2, 168 & 171 all simply became Class 101.

Those wanting a better appreciation of the complexities of the many DMU types introduced by British Railways from 1954 onwards should visit  http://www.railcar.co.uk/ where you will find many topics related to the introduction operation and preservation of DMUs.
