This site has been set up to pay tribute to the Slam Door units that are currently operating on the Southern Region as well as one remaining 1st generation DMU at Chiltern Railways. These reliable units have given solid service for many years and are now being replaced by new “Electrostar” and “Desiro” units. On this site you find a little bit of information about the surviving units, a class guide and the remaining diagrams for the relevant TOC’s.
For the latest gen I recommend the Slam Door EMU Yahoo group where you will find daily allocations and news on the remaining units
If you have any comments or suggestions or if there is something you would like to see on the site then please e-mail me.
UPDATED: 09/06/05: Updated all the diagram pages with the extra trains owing to a lack of “refreshed” Networkers. Some very interesting additions plus a couple of the normal trains have a stay of execution, including the 12-CEP diagram.
