History

The British Rail Class 410 (or 4-BEP) electric multiple units were a variant of the class 411 design, which contained a buffet car in place of a standard trailer. They were later used on services in Sussex and Hampshire. Following the privatisation of British Rail in 1995, the units were used on Connex South Central, Connex South Eastern and South West Trains franchises. They were ultimately replaced by Juniper and Electrostar units during the industry’s drive to eliminate ‘slam-door’ rolling stock for reasons of safety and modernisation. The buffet car is an entirely new tooling to make the 4-BEP a truly accurate representation of the prototype.
