Class 430 4-REP 4-Car Unit


The Class 430 4-REPs were introduced in 1967 with the Bournemouth Electrification. The REPs powered four or eight Class 491 4-TC vehicles to Bournemouth, where they were removed with Class 33 diesels taking over for the remainder of the route to Weymouth.

From 1987, many of these units were withdrawn and their traction equipment re-used in the Class 442 Wessex Electrics.
