Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Class 378 Capitalstar is a type of electric multiple unit which is part of Bombardier Transportation's Electrostar family and has been ordered for the new London Overground network. The class is derived from the Class 376 trains currently used by Southeastern, with the same wider metro-style sliding doors for more efficient boarding and alighting, which are faster and more reliable than plug doors, although they do not provide as much insulation for heating and cooling purposes. However, they also have significant differences, such as fully longitudinal seating similar to that used on London Underground rolling stock to give more standing room, which is necessary for the high passenger volume metro-style services expected to be run on London Overground. The units were initially announced as coming in two separate batches.
