With construction beginning in 1997, the `Turbostar' family of Diesel Multiple Units are by the far the most numerous design of such units introduced to the privatised railway.
Over the next fourteen years, over a hundred units belonging to this family have been built at the Derby Litchurch Lane works of Adtranz/Bombardier Transportation to operators across the country.
They have become a recognisable site across the network, sharing many design similarities with the `Electrostar' family of Electric Multiple Units. Today they can be seen from the north of Scotland to the south coast, conveying passengers on many local and long-distance services.
This book takes a look at the varied services undertaken by Turbostars, covering both past and present operators.
