Routes Featuring the Network Southeast Class 47 ;

Oxford to Paddington

Network SouthEast (NSE) started as one of three passenger sectors of British Rail created in 1982. NSE principally operated commuter trains in the London area and inter-urban services

in densely populated South East England, although the network reached as far west as Exeter. Before 1986, the NSE sector was known as London & South East.


The last passenger train still in NSE livery was lost on 15 September 2007, when a Class 465, 465193, the last still in NSE colours, was sent to Stewarts Lane TMD by Southeastern for re-vinyling into Southeastern livery. However, there is still a departmental bubble car, used for route learning, in original NSE livery operating on the Chiltern Lines out of Aylesbury.

Slow from Slough

It's a very foggy night and your task tonight is to take a NSE Class 47 back to Paddington. This is the final journey using the NSE livery for this train before heading to the depot for a repaint. There should be low levels of traffic, but there are engineering works so it won't be a clear run. Starting from Slough, you stop every station. Good luck!
