    The author gives an overview of why and how the re-equipping of Network SouthEast South Eastern Division rolling stock has been achieved. A new range of passenger rolling stock (both DMU and EMU), for intensive commuter services into and from Central London, has been created, and Networker One is the EMU version of that massive development strategy. Each Networker One train is a 4-car unit, powere... View full abstract»

    The author describes how the decision to use simulators for training drivers for Networker One EMUs was based on four clearly identified needs of the training department:- (1) conversion training of competent drivers; (2) basic training of new entrants; (3) training drivers to handle emergency situations; and (4) numerical assessment of drivers' performance. These needs were reinforced by a number... View full abstract»

    The heavy snowfall in the UK during February 1991 led to most of the modern Network SouthEast rolling stock grinding to a halt. The dry, powdery snow got into the traction motors leading to insulation failures and the doors became blocked by snow building up in the bottom runners and pockets. Network SouthEast were very keen to avoid similar problems recurring with the new Class 465 Networker One ... View full abstract»
