History & Specification Class 121/122
The BR Class 121 is a type of diesel railcar built by the Pressed Steel Company at Cowley in 1960. In all sixteen single car driving vehicles (Bubble cars, as they were nicknamed) and 10 trailer cars were built and entered service in 1960. Remarkably, two were in service until recently and eight have survived into preservation. The Class 121 was initially designed for use on branch line duties in the Western Region of BR and over its long service life has seen many modifications and changes during refurbishment, including the removal of the distinctive front exhausts and the plating over of the 4 digit roof level headcode indicator box in the 1970s.
The British Rail Class 122 is a type of diesel railcar which operated primarily on the London Midland, Scottish and the South Western Regions of British Rail between 1958 and 1995. Twenty single car driving units or bubble cars and ten trailer vehicles were built by Gloucester RC&W in 1958 and six survive into preservation. In 1980 the Scottish Region Class 122s were converted to carry parcels and reclassified as Class 131, although the cars themselves were not renumbered.
