Class 105/6 Cravens 2 & 3-car DMUs


Numbers

When Class numbers were introduced they were initially split between Class 105 and Class 106 depending the the engine they had: AEC engined vehicles were Class 105; Leyland engined vehicles were Class 106. At this time sub-classes were used as were different class numbers to differentiate non-powered vehicles. All was simplified in the late '70s when thay all just became Class 105s.

In later years, the 50xxx vehicles were renumbered into the 53xxx series, as were 56xxx vehicles which became 54xxx. This was to avoid clashing with Class 50 and 56 locos on TOPS.

The NE prefix was only carried for a brief period by some vehicles.
