2 HAP

£340.00 inc vat

The 36 SR-type 2 Hap units were initially allocated to the Eastern section where they operated interchangeably with BR standard 2 Haps, displacing the 2 Hal fleet on routes to Gillingham and Maidstone (East and West) and operating local services on the newly electrified Kent Coast network.  Geared for 90mph running they were sometimes ran in multiple with CEP and BEP units to strengthen peak services.

Some units were briefly transferred to the South Western division before, all 36 units transferred to Brighton in 1972, displacing 4 Cor units on Coastway services.  Four years later their first class compartments were declassified and the units were allocated to Central Division suburban services until large scale withdrawals commenced in the 1980s.
