1132 is a BR Southern Region class 205 diesel electrical multiple unit, commonly known as a 'Thumper' because of the distinctive noise of its 62 litre 4 cylinder English Electric 4SRKT engine. The set was renumbered 205032 when BR introduced TOPS. It was built in 1962; the underframes at Ashford and everything else at Eastleigh. It was used for commuter services in and around Berkshire until retirement from main network service in 2004. Originally it was a 3 car unit comprising DMBSO (power car) 60150, TSO (centre trailer) 60677 and DTCsoL (driving trailer) 60831, though it operates as a 2 car unit in DR service without the unrestored TSO.
