Class 111

The Class 111's were very similar to the Class 101 units, but with different engines. The only external difference was on the final batch of cars where a four character headcode box was fitted above the front cab windows, with the destination indicator on top of a reduced height centre window. The first cars built, part of an order for 339 Met-Camm cars, were 4 power/trailer sets for the LMR Manchester area built in early '57. One of these was equipped with supercharged 230hp 6-cylinder engines. This was followed by ten 3-car sets comprising DMBS/TS/DMC for the NER at Bradford, then a further twenty 3-car sets.

Only one car survives, buffet 59575. A driving trailer survived in a Class 101 set to the end of DMU operations in the 2000's in Manchester, but was sadly not saved.
