A demonstrator unit from a JV between British Railways Engineering and bus manufacturer Leyland, of England UK. Debuted on the system in 1984 but never caught on. Was last stored outside Ulu Yam in 2001 before it was scrapped following the Ipoh - Rawang Double Tracking & Electrification project.

An extract from an article in the Railway Magazine March 1984:-

First of the three BRE-Leyland demonstration railbuses, a metre gauge two car unit painted red, white and blue, left Britain by sea for Thailand on February 6. Built as an ?economy version? of the class 141 railbuses being built for British Railways, it has longitudinal seats facing inwards for 120 passengers, with standing room for a further 140.
Length over body ends of the complete two car unit is 30.5m maximum body width 2.5m. Estimated weight is 40 tonnes unladen and 56 tonnes laden. It had one car powered using the Leyland TL11 200BHP engine (Hits: 4109)
