The Bulleid 4-DD Double Deck EMU Group

The 4-DD units were a unique experiment in UK train design, an experiment which carried on in service for over 20 years. The trains were withdrawn in 1971, and only two coaches from one of the units remain both in poor condition and in need of some care and attention.

This website is dedicated to the history of the 4-DD. It supports the Yahoo and Facebook interest Groups. The group are working with the owner of 13003 from unit 4002 with the plan to restore her to her former glory. If you feel you can help in achieving this goal then please do contact us via the Yahoo Group (details below). We are a small team but have done a lot in just a few months (the group started in its current form in December 2015). It does not matter if you have no back ground in preservation you will be made most welcome and will be involved in what is a unique project.

If you have an interest in the 4-DD units, or any photographs or memories of the unit either in service or in later life that we could use please let us know via the Yahoo Group. Any photographs used will remain copyright of the owner.

We would like to thank the following individuals for permission to use their photos on the site.
