20 September 2003

The class 412 units now (late 2003) numbered in the range 2310-2317 were renumbered in 2002 from 2301-2307 and re-classified from 4-BEP (412) to 4-CEP (412/1) after having their buffet cars removed and replaced with trailer seconds taken from class 411s. The donor 411s received the buffet cars and were themselves renumbered into the range 2321-2327 and re-classified as class 412/2 (4-BEP). This renumbering is given away in this picture by the misalignment of the numbers.
