CLASS 117 HISTORY

The BR Class 117 diesel multiple units (DMUs) were built by Pressed Steel from 1959 to 1961. When first introduced, these three-car units were all based with the similar Class 121 single carriage (railcar) units on British Railway’s Western Region for suburban work out of London Paddington. The units were largely based at Reading and Southall depots and they remained here for many years working these services.

Withdrawal of other DMUs facilitated moves for some units from the Western Region to Birmingham and Scotland, prior to the delivery of new units to replace them. They were given refurbishments. The first shake up in ownership occurred in the late 1980s, when the Scottish, Welsh, Cornish and Birmingham based units were transferred to Provincial Services, later Regional Railways, in the sectorisation of British Rail, while the Southall-based units transferred to Network SouthEast. They were replaced on the lines out of Paddington when the Class 165/1 'Network Turbo' units came into service in November 1992.

They remained in service on the former Western Region until replaced by Class 150 and Class 153 DMUs during 1993. An attempt was made to remove them from Cornish work using Class 142 ‘Pacer’ units, but these non-bogie units proved to be a liability on the tight curves of the Cornish branches, increasing rail and wheel wear, and so the Pacers were moved to the North of England instead. They were finally replaced when Class 150s and Class 153s became available, having been freed up from other areas. They continued to work in Scotland until January 1998 where they were replaced with Class 156s.

For many years, passenger services on the Birmingham Cross-City Line were worked by elderly Class 117, along with Class 115, 116, 118 and 121 diesel multiple units, but all were withdrawn from service by 1995. In 2000, Class 150 Sprinter units replaced the Class 117 units on Silverlink, finally bringing to an end decades of service on Britain's rail network.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
