A total of 20 Class 122 diesel-mechanical multiple units were built by Gloucester RC&W in the 1950s. They were intended for use on lightly used branchlines on the London Midland region of British Railways - many of which were closed because of the Beeching cuts. A similar class (the Class 121s) were built later by Pressed Steel from 1960. The class were withdrawn from normal service by 1995, however, some were reclassified and operated by both EWS & Network Rail in departmental service for some years after.
