Both units were built at Crewe, being delivered in early 1979; 43309 on 20 January and 43315 on 10 March, but initially the vehicles were formed into different sets and numbered 43109 and 43115 respectively. Both have shared similar naming conventions, as Yorkshire Evening Press and Yorkshire Cricket Academy, then as Scone Palace and Aberdeenshire, but both are currently unnamed in LNER service.
