These units were an updated version of the class 104 but powered by the much more powerful Rolls Royce C6NFLH engines , 2 per driving car, designed for the route they were built for, the Lancashire & Yorkshire mainline, hence the nickname 'Calder Valley' they were originally delivered as 3 car units. The last of the class were taken out of service in October 1989 but by then they were no longer common in the Calder Valley. Andrew J Crowther.
