The second batch number in brackets are my own (not official) to show how they tie in with the rest of the Met-Camm vehicles, details can be found here.

The 1957 ER 3-car sets were unusual in that the DMCs were numbered lower than the DMBSs.

Two of the trailer seconds were renumbered in 1990 to avoid clashing with the new Class 59 locos: 59101 to 59110 and 59105 to 59111

The 36 cars converted to one engine:
