It was not unusual to see a class 115 driving motor and a class 108 driving trailer made up into a two-car set, but in this case it is interesting to see that a class 108 DTCL has been inserted in the centre of a non-gangwayed class 115 4-car set in place of one of the normal trailers (next to 59747). Seen at Paddington on 9/Jun/1991. Robert Chilton.

Not a brilliant quality shot, but included because it was unusual to see a class 115 set at Paddington. DMBS 51671 is seen at the rear of a 4-car set made up with 59747, 54499 and 51889 and with Princes Risborough on the destination blind, 9/Jun/1991. Robert Chilton.

A work-weary looking class 115 DMBS no. 51889 leading a 4-car set including a class 108 driving trailer (54499) in place of one of the normal trailers, with 59747 and 51671. The set is seen on 9/Jun/1991 leaving the, for a class 115, relatively unusual location of Paddington with the rear power car making quite a smokey departure. By the end of 1991 the leading power car had been withdrawn from service.
