Diesel Multiple Units
These diesel multiple units (DMU) are typical of the many such self-propelled trains used on branch lines and suburban services from the 1950s to the 1990s, but the Buckfastleigh line had closed to passengers before they became a familiar sight in Devon. They are all of the 'suburban' type with doors to each seating bay.
