    is this an EPB or a DEMU conversion?

    Tom - a simple search of the site will reveal this vehicles former identities.

    Apparently this is due to leave St Leonards on Friday for preservation at Newton Purcell to join the other former sandites...

    Anyone know, when numbered 10400, which unit this vehicle belonged too prior to its departmental career?

    was it SUB or EPB?

    I only ask because it is a Bullied build, wheras the Finmere Sandite EPBs are all BR Mk1.

    It was a 4Sub augmentation trailer from one of the 43xx units built new in 1925 as 3 car units (will dig out the actual unit nos later).

    Converted to a de-icer in the early 1960s (I think) for the Kent Coast electrification when it was modified to be able to work between pairs of electro-pneumatic equiped emus.

    There were four such conversions originally.

    Further to my note above. S10400S was formed into unit 4349 in the spring of 1946 when it was lengthened from 3 car unit 1519.

    4349 was withdrawn in the summer of 1960 and 10400 was converted and renumbered DS70087 at the end of the year. The units motor coaches were also converted to a de-icing unit.

    DS70087 was renumbered 977364 many years later, one of the relatively few vehicles renumbered from one of the pre-nat departmental series to the main BR one.

    Thanx for the info. Much appreciated. Its incredible to think it has been in departmental service so long.
