The British Rail Class 413 (or 4-CAP) units were formed from 1982 by permanently coupling two Class 414 2-HAP units together. There were two sub-classes of units: class 413/2, units 3201–3213, converted in 1982 from phase 1 2 HAP units 6001-6049. These units were formed DTCsoL - MBSO - MBSO - DTCsoL, with the former driving equipment of the DMBSO decommissioned, giving the new designation; and class 413/3, units 3301–3311 (formed 1982) and 3321–3325 (formed 1991), converted from the later phase 2 build units 6050–6173. These units were formed with the DMBSO outermost giving the formation, DMBSO - TCsoL - TCsoL - DMBSO, with the centre vehicles again having their driving equipment decommissioned.
