Description

Hastings line unit 1001 is seen in Eastbourne carriage sidings in January 1986.


Co-ed note - I hope I have got this one right! The British Rail Class 201 (or 6S) six-car diesel-electric multiple units (DEMUs) were built in 1957-1958 at Eastleigh and Ashford. They were built for use on the London-Hastings line. Several tunnels along the route had restricted clearance, meaning that these units were built with a narrow body profile.
