First Generation Diesel Multiple Units - Part 3

Basic Facts for TOPS Class 125

This is Part 3 of an occasional series of basic facts for my uploaded FG DMU repaints for MSTS.

This part covers the Class 125 sets, that can be found here uploaded by Rufuskins. The make-up of the sets is defined in the Consists section of the UKTS uploads, and these represent the typical formation of 3 car sets comprising DMBS+TS+DMS. It should of course be pointed out that no formation was ever “cast in tablets of stone”!

The Class 125s were introduced in 1959 and delivered new to Stratford for services along the Lea Valley line from London Liverpool St. into Hertfordshire and Essex, serving the lines to Cheshunt, Epping and even as far east as Southminster on the Burnham-on-Crouch branch.

When the line was electrified the sets were transferred to Finsbury Park, working on peak-hour services out of Kings Cross alongside loco-hauled sets and the odd Cravens (the off-peak service was entirely Cravens to the end). This line was also soon electrified, resulting in their withdrawal.

The Class 125s started with BR Green livery with whiskers, followed by BR Green with small yellow panels and onto BR Blue livery with initially small yellow panels and finally full yellow panels.
