  • 457001

    3 January 2004 - Ben

    This was converted from Class 210 DEMU vehicles as a traction development unit for the Networkers. Four vehicles were converted, 67300/1 and 67400/1, these having been formerly numbered 60300/1 and 60400/1.

    Initially used on NSE South Western division in passenger service during 1989/90, formed 67300-67401-71733-67301. 71733 being a cl.455 vehicle with 67400 taking its place in set 5920. Classified as Class 457, set number 7001.

    Transferred to NSE Great Eastern in 1990 and reformed 67300-67401-71246-67301 for AC testing. 71246 being a cl.313 pantograph coach, 67400 remained as a spare car in the cl.455 fleet. Classified as Class 316 and given set number 316999.

    Returned to South Western briefly in 1991, reverting to 7001, before being withdrawn as testing complete, Taken to Eastleigh Works where it remained for several years.

    Current status of the vehicles is:

    67300 - preserved, Coventry

    67301 - preserved, Coventry

    67400 - in service with SWT, in set 5912

    67401 - scrapped 1997

    Thanks to Simon Bendall for this info.

    The disposal for 67401 appears to be under question and so if anyone knows anything about it or has any sightings please let me know...

    Hmm, let SWT know. They could do with a 455 driving end after the one that got dinged at Oxshott!

    I have 67401 (ex-60401 and 57001) as cut up at EH Works in June 1997.

    67301 was sold by SERA at Coventry back to HSBC/Eversholt leasing as a spare vehicle.
