2SL 3rd rail EMU(ex LBSCR overhead powered) 

The LBSCR introduced EMUs using overhead power, but when the Southern Railway took control, they standardised on 3rd rail, so the LBSCR units were converted. Pairs of end cars were put in sets , each end having the original lower roof, making them very different to other EMUs on the railway. Designated 2SL, they spent most of their life on the South London lines. They lasted till the mid 50s.

Bulleid 4DD EMU

Conceived by Oliver Bulleid for the Southern Railway's commuter route from London Charing Cross to Dartford, the two 4DD electric multiple units were the only double-deck trains to run on the main line railway network in Britain.

SR(exLSWR) rebuilt 3SUB EMU

Originally built by the LSWR, converting loco hauled coaches with distinctive torpedo shaped cabs . They were an immediate success, and the SR then rebuilt the bodies on longer chassis to handle more passengers. They normally ran as 3 car units(3SUB) but an extra coach could be inserted (4SUB). In this state they survived into BR days.

SR 4COR 'Nelson' EMU coach set

SR 4RES 'Nelson' EMU coach set

SR 4BUF 'Nelson' EMU coach set




In 1937 the SR introduced their 12car fully corridor emu trains on the newly electrified Portsmouth line. The name 'Nelson' resulted from the non drivers front window being replaced by destination screen, as corridor door was in centre.

Sets of 4COR and 4RES made up the Portmouth trains. 
In 1938 similar trains were introduced on the Mid Sussex line, with buffet car relacing restaurant, in set 4BUF.
In 1962 3 of the 4RES sets had their restauant car fully refurbished in BR Mk 1 coach style as a griddle car. 

These electric trains were finally withdrawn from service in 1972.
