British Rail Class 151 Prototype Sprinter units were built by Metro Cammell in 1985. Only two 3-car units
were built, and were numbered 151001 and 151002.

The vehicles were equipped with Cummins NT855 285 hp (213 kW) diesel engines, with hot-shift Twin Disc
transmissions and Gmeinder final drives. The maximum speed for the Class 151 units was 75 mph (120 km/h).

This class has a number of unusual features, including hydraulically driven alternators and cooling fans,
and the bogies were non-standard. Due to being non-standard units, they were withdrawn from traffic in
March 1989.

There were plans to refurbish the units for spot hire to train operating companies, but this did not come
into fruition. The Class 151 units were scrapped in 2004.
