This section contains the expanding range of diesel unit trains, with Bachmann producing several classes of the short-frame low density sets used on branchlines and secondary routes, plus the modern 'Turbostar' generation units, while Dapol are concentrating on the suburban type units.
The few models of electric units, the Hornby/Arnold Brighton Belle and Bachmann/Graham Farish Desiro units, have been placed with the electric locomotives.
Railcars and unit trains are now the principal types of trains in use on Britains Railways. The first successful diesel trains were the GWRs' streamlined railcars. British Rail built Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) to take over from steam locomotives on branchline and suburban passenger trains in the 1950s and 60s.
Today Intercity 125 High Speed Trains (HST) and Voyagers form the backbone of poer on the British passenger rail network.
