3D Printed BR Southern Region DEMUs

The Southern Region introduced DEMUs in the 1950s and 60s to replace steam hauled trains on lines which were not electrified. The best known are the narrow bodies Hastings 6 car units which were built with either 58ft or 64ft long bodies. 

The Class 201 (or 6S) six-car diesel-electric multiple units (DEMUs) were built in 1957-1958 . They were built for the London-Hastings line, with a narrow body profile to accommodate the restricted tunnel loading gauge on that line. 

The class 206 3 car unit was created in mid 60s using spare motor coach , trailer 2nd, and EPB driving trailer coach . Nicknamed Tadpoles due to the different width of the Hasting stock and the EPB coach. These were used on the Tonbridge to Guildford line for many years.
In final years, sets were mixed up, and 6S and 6L units sometines run together.
