Seen at Lawnswood, at the end of its first journey in passenger service, is Leeds 601. It was the less elaborate, electrically, of the two railcars which had bodies built by Charles H. Roe at Crossgates.
Seating was provided for seventeen in each saloon with a standing capacity of thirty-six (fourteen in each saloon and eight in the central entrance lobby), and the body was mounted on two E.M.B. Lightweight bogies. Metropolitan Vickers supplied the electrical equipment with a controller giving four rates of acceleration through a twenty-three notch automatic acceleration control system.
