2SL and 2WIM 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. 

The original first class trailer coaches were converted into motor and trailer pairs, similar, but no lower roof. These were designated 2WIM, and ran on the Croydon to Wimbledon line

They lasted till the mid 50s.

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.

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.

Southern Railway 2-BIL EMU

The Southern Railway 2-BIL electric multiple units were built during the 1930s to work long-distance semi-fast services on the newly electrified lines from London to Eastbourne, Portsmouth and Reading. They survived in British Rail ownership long enough to be allocated TOPS Class 401.
The different batches were broadly similar, though in the first one, the driving motor brake car had a smaller brake compartment and seven full compartments, rather than six-and-a-half in the later batches. 
Last set withdrawn in 1971. One set is preserved.

During 1940s the SR introduced a new welded steel 4-car suburban unit with curved sides, seating six passengers across rather than the normal five.
The later batches introduced at end of WW2 had slab fronts. They continued to be built into BR days, and survived up till 1980s. Designated class 405 under TOPS. 
Used on the London suburban services of all three divisions of BR (S).
Unit number 4732, formed of DMBTO 12795, TT 10239, TTO 12354 and DMBTO 12796 is preserved
