Welcome to - last updated 10th Jan.

This site has been set up to provide information on the Class 442 trains, both prior to and after their withdrawal
from service with South West Trains. There is also a forum for discussion of the 442s and other rail-related matters.

Please feel free to browse the site and join in the discussions on the forum!

--- Update: 3rd October 2012 ---
I am very aware this site is in a neglected state. I have plans to completely re-write it to make it an information
resource for the Class 442s, focusing on their withdrawal and transfer to Southern/Gatwick Express services.
Unfortunately, job and time constraints mean this has been pushed onto the back burner and looks to stay there
for some time. I will update as and when I have further news.

Also, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITIONS! --- See the "Petitions" page for more information.
