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 488 are unpowered trailer sets, converted from Mark 2F coaches for the Gatwick Express service from London Victoria railway station to Gatwick Airport. The sets were converted from conventional locomotive-hauled coaching stock in 1983-1984, and were used in combination with Class 73 electro-diesel locomotives and Class 489 luggage vans. Two variations were converted: 2-car sets and 3-car sets. They are officially formed of two subclasses. The two-car units are classified as Class 488/2 and are numbered in the range 488201-488210 and the three-car sets are Class 488/3 and are numbered 488301-19.show more
