Introduced in the mid-1980s for use on regional routes. Now approaching 40 years old and almost all remain in service. These British Rail designed units must therefore be considered to be something of a success story, as they continue to form the backbone of many of the regional services.

This is unit No. 150234 on a service from Exmouth to Paignton.
