SET_376_1.jpg (75163 bytes)

"Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains, seen in its very first week of revenue operation.

As these units are to run only on Metro services (London-Dartford/Orpington/Hayes) and thence through no tight-gauge tunnels, they are devoid of end-gangways, unlike 375s and 377s.

London Bridge. 19th August 2004.

"Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains, seen on one of its very first revenue services, an unscheduled London Cannon Street-Bromley North.

As these units are to run only on Metro services (London-Dartford/Orpington/Hayes) and thence through no tight-gauge tunnels, they are devoid of end-gangways, unlike 375s and 377s.

"Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains, seen on one of its very first revenue services, an unscheduled London Cannon Street-Bromley North.

Carbodies look very similar to those of other Electrostars (357s, 375s, 377s), yet not fully identical, with a more basic design.

SET_376_5.jpg (46713 bytes)

Doors to a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Unlike all other Electrostars (357s, 375s and 375s) and even Turbostars (168s, 170s and 171s), 376s do not feature plugging-doors, but mere sliding-doors, like so many "traditional" Metro fleets.

This is to secure high reliability as well as to contain dwelling times, in an attempt to restore good timekeeping on the inner-urban network.

SET_376_7.jpg (44900 bytes)

Vestibule of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Given that 376s are to run on inner-urban services only, they feature vestibules that outlarge those of any other fleet of SET, particularly Networkers (465s and 466s).

This is to make overcrowding more tolerable, primarily in the Morning peak.

SET_376_8.jpg (38175 bytes)

Vestibule of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Perch seats and more handrails are to improve standing conditions, particularly in the Morning peak.

One can also spot the pocket where doors slide into when opening.

SET_376_9.jpg (54527 bytes)

Interiors of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

One can again appreciate the good amount of handrails.

Unlike fleets hitherto used on SET inner-urban services, 2+2 seating has been preferred to 3+2, so as to broaden the aisle.

This is to improve overall travelling conditions, with (slightly) wider seats, more room for standees, and easier passenger motion, again in an attempt to contain dwelling times.

SET_376_a11.jpg (48690 bytes)

Interiors of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

These units do not feature a single toilet, in view of their strictly inner-urban duties. This has contained the loss of seats arising out of 2+2 seating and enlarged vestibules.

Car gangways are very common. Originally, specs for 376s would contemplate full-gauge, articulated gangways, as on most Tram fleets or on some recent Metro rolling-stock.

Crashworthiness issues and time constraints have eventually led to a more straightforward design. Yet, gangways look somehow larger than those of Networkers (465s and 466s).

SET_376_a12.jpg (44141 bytes)

Interiors of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Notwithstanding the inner-urban duties of this fleet, seats feature high backs, in line with HSE guidelines.

Upholstery is far harder and tighter than on fleets hitherto operated by SET. Covers are also softer, and seem fewer vulnerable to filth and vandalism.

SET_376_a13.jpg (43842 bytes)

Interiors of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Slimmer seatbacks have released much-welcome extra legroom. A world of difference with Networkers (465s and 466s).

This pic was taken while this train was halted somewhere in Bermondsey, so that one can guess the Canary Wharf in the background.

As this service was unscheduled, it had to stop various times to get a spare, ad hoc path, although it was running off-peak (early-afternoon).

Interiors of a "Metro" Class 376 (376 002) Electrostar of South Eastern Trains.

Slimmer seatbacks have released much-welcome extra legroom. A world of difference with Networkers (465s and 466s).

This row even features more legroom than others, as it concerns priority seats.
