List of British Rail departmental multiple unit classes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from British Rail Class 932)

The 900 series classes were reserved for multiple units in departmental stock, most of which were converted from old passenger units. In broad terms, Classes 930–935 were allocated to Southern Region multiple units (ex-200 and 400 series), 936 & 937 to other electrical multiple units (EMU) (ex-300 and 500 series) and 960 to other diesel multiple units (DMU) (ex-100 series). In recent years, this has been less rigidly adhered to.
