Class 455

455829 Southern version refurbished 455829 enters Clapham Junction on the 19th April 2005 with a Caterham bound service. In the opinion of the photographer the front end of the 455/8 series was never pretty and this refurbishment has not improved matters!

455732 However, subsequent units to emerge from refurbishment at Chart Leacon have featured a "swooshes" modified to wrap round the cab window. Whilst this might mean one less colour to apply the photographer thinks the earlier version looks best.
