Collett's distinctive bow-ended coaches were developed from a pre-production series of 3 lots , being introduced from late 1925 onwards. Originally formed into six coach sets formed from E127, C54 & D94, or E127, C54 & D95 diagrams, later sets were marshalled into eight coach all Third Class rakes comprised of C58 & D104 diagrams. Comfortable and smooth riding, the type lasted well into British Railways' service, the final examples being withdrawn during December 1962 and January 1963.
