Default Class 122 bubble car.

Do the above all run as single units or do some have dummies in tandem ?.

Sorry Brian. I have known the bubblecars that Arriva bought to run in pairs but apart from the ones they bought or hired to run from Cardiff Queen St to Cardiff Bay around 2005, the only one I have ever seen in my area was back in the mid '80's and I had to run to take a PIC. I was told when I asked years later that they occasionally used them in my area for training and route learning purposes. I assume they were cheaper to run so were ideal.
I've no idea if the one I saw was a 121 or a 122.
