The BR Class 121 is a type of diesel railcar built by the Pressed Steel Company at Cowley in 1960. In all, sixteen single car driving vehicles (‘Bubble cars’, as they were nicknamed) and 10 trailer cars were built and entered service in 1960. Remarkably, two are still in service today and eight have survived into preservation.

The Class 121 was initially designed for use on branch line duties in the Western Region of BR and over its long service life has seen many modified cations and changes during refurbishment, including the removal of the distinctive front exhausts and the plating over of the 4 digit roof level headcode indicator box in the 1970s.
