Class 43 ECML ‘DVTs’

Class 43 ECML ‘DVTs’

11th January 2020 7 By Bodge It TMD

Version 1.1

With the early introduction of electric services on the ECML in the 1980s and the new Mk4 stock yet to be delivered, 2+8 HST sets were used as a stopgap with a brand new Class 91 providing traction power at one end and a modified powercar ‘DVT’ providing auxiliary power at the other. In total, 8 powercars were modified with TDM equipment and buffers to make them compatible with the Class 91s and they also gained distinct full yellow fronts. After initially providing only auxiliary power, traction power had to be reinstated due to reliability issues caused by the continuous idling, giving a total output of over 8000hp per set!
