Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The British Rail Class 455 is a type of electric multiple unit drawing power from a 750 V DC third rail. Built by BREL at York works in the early and mid-1980s, they were initially categorised as Class 510 as the successor to the Class 508.[1] They are used on suburban services in South London, by South West Trains and Southern. There were three batches of Class 455 units, all consisting of 4 cars: driving carriages at each end, an intermediate trailer vehicle and an intermediate motorised vehicle (powered by four GEC507-20J of 185 kW carried on the bogies of the MSO vehicle, some recovered from Class 405[1]), all originally built to the Standard Class 3+2 seating arrangement.show more
