I would further define a DMU as coaching stock with the ability to change gear! :D

I always liked the Class 101 but then they always ran along the line I could see from my old back skylight in Sheringham.I know it's sentimental but it was the 1st time we'd had a working railway line quite near to us(we'd lived in deepest Suffolk so the nearest station to us was Dullingham,near Newmarket :roll: )
Managed to find a 3-car set of this yesterday at long last.

I'd always have loved to have seen the Tyne & Wear Metro cars produced in OO Scale,but technically they aren't diesel.......

If it's horrible, it's a DMU. My favorite would be a class 158, not because I like them, but because they annoy everybody else.

Edit: Oh, and FGWL never seem to clean them.

In my train spotting days I used to hate them they were often referred to as bog carts but nowadays i do have a certain amount of nostalgic sentiment for them thinking back to the 70's my favourites were probably the 104's because of the forward view through the drivers compartment or the trans pennine 124's which were great accellerators on the flat

of the modern units i think i prefer the 158's to the 170's

The Derby Lightweight DMU is my favourite - in appearance at least. They'd been withdrawn for some time before I became interested in railways, so I don't know what they were like from a passenger's point of view.

Class 101 for me :)

Instantly reminded of warm cosy commute to school on a cold morning. Evocative engine noise as well.

I quite like the Class 150s,

my favourite model of a DMU is Bachmann's Class 108. :)

Funnily enough, I'm going to have to say either a 156/142, even possibly a 221 (when you get a quiet time)
