About Tulloch prototype double decker S10 by Lucien Stubbs-Brown

The four Tulloch double decker power cars were built as part of an experiment to find suitable equipment for the upcoming S set suburbans. Each car had equipment, bogies and pantographs from different manufacturers, C3801 had Mitsubishi, C3802 was the most unusual of the four with toshiba equipment and budd pioneer III bogies with disc breaks. C3803 had hitachi equipment, and C3804, the first car to be completed had English electrical equipment, it was also the only car to have a bigger pantograph well to fit the larger Metro Vickers pantograph. The four power cars were parred with four modified tulloch trailers, making an 8 car set with the distinction of being the first fully double decker electric train in the world. After the experiment was completed two cars C3801 and C3803 were converted to trailers, C3802's conversion was started however due to its unique bogies the conversion was cancelled and it was scrapped. C3804 remained at the entrance of the car sheds before being preserved.
