RB004, a single-car variant of the class 141, was built in 1984 by BREL/Leyland as a demonstrator for potential export sales. It was trialled on various Railroads in the USA before returing to Britain in 1986.

RB004 moved to Whitrope in 2012 to operate on the Waverley Route Heritage Association's short line which opened on 31 July 2012. It has remained in use for the 2019 running season, but may be replaced by class 142 Pacers acquired in 2020.
