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.

2-car BR Metropolitan-Cammell class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit in Network South East multi-stripe livery.

Introduced in the 1950's these DMU's replaced steam passenger trains on branch lines and local services across the country. The ability to couple these trains together to form longer trains when needed with just one driver and guard made these units very flexible in service. The last units of this type were still in passenger service in 2000 and several sets have been preserved.

Bachmann Graham Farish N Gauge 371-628 GWR Railcar W22W BR Green with Speed Whiskers
Delivery expected February 2018.

Bachmann intend to re-tool the mode of the GWR railcar to greatly improve the standard of this model and bring it into line their with recent diesel railcar models of the 101 and 108 DMUs. The new chassis will feature a DCC decoder socket.

Several railway companies experimented with diesel traction between the wars, testing shunting engines, 4-wheel 'railbus' units and bogie rail cars. Only the Great Western with AEC developed 'prototypes' into viable production trains. Following the smooth-curved coach-built express railcars Swindon produced a more angular streamlined styling, better suited to mass production and built 20 cars to this design, including one parcels car and notably 4 single-ended cars arranged to work in pairs. These last four being the forerunners in mechnical design of the British Rail diesel multiple units of the 1950/60s.
