Class 43 (Intercity 125). The difference between a traditional loco pulled train and a concentrated propulsion DMU is that the latter is designed as a fixed trainset with at least two locos at each end.

Got it. It seems to be a somewhat obsolete technology then.

A cheap and mature technology, just like other loco pulled trains that dated back to the 1800s, we don't think they are obsolete because they serve their purpose well.

Thanks flankerjun,!! I love the Zifero series there are not enough pictures of them around! Also I would love them to run in the USA as well but Siemens seems to be pretty buddy buddy rail authorities in the US at the moment so it seems kinda unlikely.
