I won't take away the undoubted pleasure that you will derive from reading through my 116 thread so here is the short version.  116s appeared on peak services from the Midland and were based on Cricklewood.  Formations of three power cars and one trailer were used.  Cricklewood depot was not noted for keeping sets in formation.
