Book Details

From the author of the acclaimed AC Electrics, DC Electrics, and Traction Recognition comes this informative new work exploring every modern DMU design.
Covering a huge range of classes, Colin Marsden delves deep into the changing world of DMUs, their origins, history and their impact on the current railway scene. The book is divided into a clear, easily understandable structure with separate sections focussing upon each class, and is packed with vibrant colour photographs of the trains both in tableau and in action.
Each class is discussed within a concise narrative exploring its many liveries and design modifications, giving readers a more comprehensive analysis than ever before. It is quite amazing to consider that some classes, the 150 and 158 for example, have had no less than 26 and 29 liveries and design modifications. Other classes featured include 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, and 151, 153, 154, 155, 156,159, 165, 166, 170, 171, 172, 175, 180, 185.
Published at an opportune time when many will be reflecting upon the various changes that have taken place on the DMU scene, with the type expanding into new areas of use and beginning to use new fleet modifications, this is the up to date guide that diesel traction enthusiasts have been waiting for.
