Bachmann 31-491: BR(S) Southern Region 4-BEP 4 car EMU, blue/grey: 7010


4-BEP and 4-CEP multiple units were introduced in the late 1950s / early 1960s for the Kent Coast electrification to operate express services from London Victoria and Charing Cross to Margate, Ramsgate, Canterbury, Dover and Folkestone.

Multiple units are a semi-permanently coupled sets of, in this case, 4 coaches which contain a drivers cab in each end coach.  Motors are fitted under the coaches so that the complete "unit" is self propelled and does not a require a separate loco haulage.  This enables the train to easily reverse at terminals without requiring a replacement loco at the opposite end.  By connecting more than one unit together, longer trains can be run which can be easily split to serve alternative destinations if required.

4-BEPs differed from 4-CEPs in having a Buffet car in place of one of the compartment coaches. Trains often operated in 8 or 12 coach lengths with one 4-BEP, and either 1 or 2 4-CEP units.
