HistoryEdit

When first introduced, these three-car units were all based with the similar Class 121 units on British Railway's Western Region for suburban work out of London Paddington, as well as South Wales.

Each three car set featured standard seating driving vehicles with a composite and lavatory intermediate trailer. Initially they were built without inter-vehicle gangways, but in 1965 they were retrofitted.

Following the sectorisation of British Rail in the late 1980s, Provincial Services, later Regional Railways, took over the Scottish, Welsh, Cornish and Birmingham units while the Southall based units transferred to Network SouthEast.

They were replaced on services out of Paddington when the Class 165 'Network Turbo' units came into service in the early 1990s, but they soldiered on in the former Western Region until Class 150s and Class 153s were made available. In Birmingham, they were replaced in 1995. The Scottish units survived until the turn of the millennium when Class 156s and Class 170 DMUs replaced them, and the last 117 was replaced on Silverlink's inner-London services in the year 2000.

Owing to their longevity and easy-to-maintain nature, many have found their way into preservation. Indeed, the one included with the add-on is based on the resident 117 at the West Somerset Railway.
