The remainder of the “Hastings” DEMUs were built on standard-length underframes, hence they were designated as long, or “6L” units (1011 – 1019); and likewise but containing a Buffet car, hence the designation “6B” (units 1031 – 1037).Each Motor Coach has the portion nearest its cab set aside for the engine-room, which contains the floor-mounted engine/generator-set that provides motive power and electrical supply for a load equivalent to 3 carriages.Our three fully-restored motor coaches are fitted with TPWS, which forms part of the signalling system on many UK rail routes.

The first seven “Hastings” DEMUs (numbers 1001 – 1007) were built on underframes already fabricated at Eastleigh for locomotive-hauled coaching-stock, which were of shorter than standard length; in these short-underframed, or “6S”, units, one saloon (or the engine & guard’s compartment) occupies the length of 4 window-bays/seating-bays, the other only three.
The master controller, which controls the power being delivered to the traction motors, is on the right; to the left is the brake handle.
The gauges are (left to right), main reservoir & train pipe pressures, brake cylinder pressure, speedometer, and driving-current (Amps).To its upper-left is the engine-governor, and the housing of the camshaft-bearing is lower on its left.The individual cylinder-heads for the four-cylinder engine are plainly visible.It has spent all its life in the Southern Hemisphere and therefor is in excellent condition.
