2 HAP, 2 SAP & 4 CAP EMU Class 414 BR Units

British Rail’s Southern Region
2 HAP, 2 SAP & 4 CAP Electric Units
BR Design

 

In June 1957 the first of a series of BR standard design 2-car electric multiple units emerged from Eastleigh works on underframes constructed at Ashford. They were classified as 2 HAP and were numbered from 6001 upwards. ‘2 HAP’ indicated what was basically a modernised EP braked version of the 2 HAL units although the internal layout and bodystyles were very different.

The name HAP followed on from the 2 HAL Half-A-Lavatory units:
HAP denoting Half-A-(lavatory) (electro) Pneumatic.

Latterly the first class accommodation in the 2 HAP units was downgraded to second class to form the 2 SAP units:
SAP denoting Second class (half)-A-(lavatory) (electro) Pneumatic.

From April /May 1982 pairs of 2 HAP units were permanently coupled together for use on the Coastway Services out of Brighton. These became 4 CAP units:
CAP denoting Coastway (half)-A-(lavatory) (electro) Pneumatic.

These codes originally used capital letters with no hyphen for although some railway documentation has occasionally used lower case and hyphens.

 

2 HAP UNITS NOS. 6001 – 6173

The first batch of forty two units, 6001 ‑ 6042 were ‘1951 type’ stock with similar electrical equipment to the 1951 built 4 EPB units and BR 2 EPB units with contactor control. This was followed by the ‘1957 type’ Phase 1 units 6043 – 6105 then two builds of ‘1957 type’ for Phase 2 units 6106 ‑ 6146 (in 1961 with BR Mark 3B motor bogies and Commonwealth bogies) and units 6147 ‑ 6173 (in 1963 with BR Mark 4 motor bogies and Commonwealth bogies).

 

‘1951 type’ stock 6001 - 6042

The first batch of forty two units, 6001 ‑ 6042 were ‘1951 type’ stock with similar electrical equipment to the 1951 built 4 EPB units and BR 2 EPB units with contactor control. These units were ordered in three sub batches, units 6001 ‑ 6004, 6005 ‑ 6011 & 6012 ‑ 6042, the final sub batch being authorised on authority of HOO (Head Office Order) number 4280 as part of the ‘Gatwick’ budget for improving train services between London and the airport, though the units themselves went into traffic on the South Eastern Division displacing 2 HAL units to the Central Division to enable an increase in services to Gatwick.

Unit 6004 was displayed at the Eastleigh works open day on 7th August 1957 and the first batch of four units entered service from Monday 18th August 1957 working as an eight coach formation on the 8.9am Sevenoaks to Cannon Street and 5.30pm return service. The delivery of the 6005 ‑ 6011 batch in November 1957 enabled some peak-hour services from Holborn Viaduct to Gillingham to be covered by the new stock. These first eleven units were trimmed with red ‘sprig & octopus’ repp material in second class.

The 6012 - 6042 batch began to arrive in February 1958, these differing from the first eleven units by having their bogie sidespring hangers fitted with BTR vibro-dampers and having ‘trojan’ grey moquette seating in second class. The first few units of this batch (up to about 6018) also saw use on Eastern Section peak-hour trains. They also saw some use on the Central section on weekend relief trains to Eastbourne.

By April 1958 units up to 6034 had arrived, and these, along with the first deliveries of the SR type 2 HAP units 5601 ‑ 5605 were then diagrammed to cover the all‑day service from Charing Cross to Gillingham, beginning the large scale displacement of the 2 HAL units to the Central section; these being required there for the expansion of the Gatwick Airport services from 9th June 1958.

Bogie problems with this whole batch of 42 units (similar to those encountered with the ‘Hastings’ diesel units and the BR type 2 EPB units) led to an urgent repair programme from August 1958 at Ashford works. The bogies were fitted with reinforcing and new sidespring hanger brackets and those not already fitted had BTR vibro-dampers added at the bottom of the sidespring hangers.

Visually the ‘1951 type’ Phase 1 units had roof-mounted lighting conduit including the piping to the lavatory water tanks.

On all of the Phase 1 units the passenger windows were fitted from inside the coach and sealed with mastic so they were almost flush with the bodyside.

 

 

 ‘1957 type’ Phase 1 units 6043 ‑ 6105

The next batch of sixty three units numbered 6043 ‑ 6105 were ‘1957 type’ Phase 1 units with updated control equipment including camshaft control gear and their new bogies incorporated the modifications already carried out on the ‘1951 type’ units. However, these were still found to have poor riding qualities and were progressively uprated to Mark 4 bogies from 1963 during overhauls, though units 6042 /6048 /6074 were fitted with Mark 4 bogies by late 1961. These BR Mark 4 bogies were rebuilt Mark 1 bogies with improved damping. These units were used in conjunction with the ‘1951’ batches on the South Eastern Division to inaugurate Phase 1 of the Kent Coast Electrification and displace further 2 HAL units to the Central & South Western Divisions to enable the withdrawal of the 2 NOL units.

With the 4 CEP /4 BEP units programmed to work Victoria Ramgate /Dover fast trains, the primary Kent Coast rush-hour services as well as Continental Boat Trains to Dover Marine the 2 HAP units were intended to work other services to Ramsgate and Dover as well as to Maidstone East and the Sheerness branch.

The additional 2 HAP units were required from 15th June 1959 and despite the first few being delivered from late in 1958, many were not delivered in time for the start of the new electrification timetable. With only twenty-seven of the sixty-three 2 HAP units available two trains of 8 HAL had to be temporarily borrowed by the South Eastern Division until September 1959, these then working beyond their traditional areas of operation right through to Ramsgate on stopping services from Charing Cross.

The first few units delivered were initially stored, units 6049‑52 being stored at Gatwick by 14th March 1959. A few were put into traffic at the end of March (units 6047 /6048 /6053 /6054) being used, displacing a few of the ‘1951’ units (some of which were then used for testing on the newly electrified line) unit 6039 being located at Canterbury East from early March and loco-hauled to test for shoegear clearances.

After the traction current was switched-on from 1st April 1959 the unit ran test trips to Selling and was joined by unit 6035 from 14th April 1959 and ran further afield. By 15th June 1959 when the units were needed (34 still had not been delivered - unit 6067 and 6070 upwards being outstanding) the shortfall was made-up by borrowing EPB units, withdrawing 2 HAP units off the Sevenoaks peak-hour services and the loan of two 8 HAL trains from the Central section.

Visually the ‘1957 type’ Phase 1 units had no external conduits save the piping to the lavatory water tanks.

On all of the Phase 1 units the passenger windows were fitted from inside the coach and sealed with mastic so they were almost flush with the bodyside.

 

‘1957 type’ for Phase 2 units 6106 ‑ 6146
(1961 build)

A third batch of forty one units, 6106 ‑ 6146 were built in 1961 for Phase 2 of the Kent Coast Electrification scheme. These were ‘1957 type’ Phase 2 units but to an interim design which retained certain details of the earlier Phase 1 units and this batch were fitted with BR Mark 3B motor bogies and Commonwealth bogies at the inner end of both coaches; the bogie under the cab of the DTC being a Mark 3.

Local trains between Ramsgate and Dover were turned over to electric operation from 2nd January 1961 and 2 HAP stock was used, spare new ‘phase 2’ CEP units replaced 2 HAP stock on the 5.18pm Cannon Street to Ramsgate to provide the stock to cover this as no ‘phase 2’ HAP units had yet been delivered. Again, not all were ready in time for the inauguration of the electric services on 12th June 1961, only units up to about 6120 being available, with some ad hoc re-diagramming being done to cover the shortfall, the final units of this batch not being delivered until January 1962.

Visually the 1961 build of Phase 2 units did not have external roof conduit.

On all of the Phase 2 units the passenger windows were fitted with a rubber gasket resulting in an external window frame. They also had one-piece lavatory windows without sliding ventilators. Phase 2 units were also equipped with Commonwealth bogies at the inner end of each coach.

 

‘1957 type’ for Phase 2 units 6147 ‑ 6173
(1963 build)

A final batch of twenty seven units built in 1963 (numbers 6147 – 6173) went to the Central & South Western divisions and were ‘1957 type’ Phase 2 units with detail differences from the earlier batches. This batch reverted to the use of BR Mark 4 motor bogies. Units from 6106 onwards were built with conduits and wiring for Westinghouse AWS equipment, though this was sealed out of use and remained so on virtually all these units; only four (6112 /6126 /6141 /6168) having it made operational in the 1980‘s. New units were loco-hauled from Eastleigh to Selhurst, sometimes in mixed formations with new 4 CEP & 4 BEP units, where shoegear was fitted and initial testing carried out.

Visually the 1963 build of Phase 2 units did not have external roof conduit but did have additional rainstrips to the 1961 build. These 1963 build units also featured a modified cab end arrangement with a smaller headcode window and slightly tapered windscreens.

On all of the Phase 2 units the passenger windows were fitted with a rubber gasket resulting in an external window frame. They also had one-piece lavatory windows without sliding ventilators. Phase 2 units were also equipped with Commonwealth bogies at the inner end of each coach.

The layout and dimensions of all units was the same, but there were a number of detail differences between the different batches. The 1951 type units had roof-mounted lighting conduit whereas the 1957 units had a much tidier appearance with no external cables, though 1957 Phase 1 units had some external pipework in connection with the lavatory fillers on the DTC vehicle.

Units in the 6106 ‑ 6146 batch had completely clean roofs with only the ventilators whilst the final batch were similar but fitted with additional rainstrips. Units up to 6105 had windows which were fitted from inside the coach so they were almost flush with the bodyside and sealed with mastic, whilst later 1957 Phase 2 units had them fitted within a frame by rubber gasket with an external window frame as a result. These units also featured a modified cab end arrangement with a smaller headcode window and slightly tapered windscreens, but 6106 ‑ 6146 (although Phase 2 units) retained the former style with deeper headcode and rectangular windscreens. However, they did have many other Phase 2 features such as the one-piece toilet window without sliding ventilators. To improve the riding qualities of the units numbers 6106 ‑ 6173 were equipped with Commonwealth bogies at the inner end of each coach, increasing the weight of each vehicle by one ton.

 

Motor Brake Seconds (MBS)

The motor brake second in all units was to the same layout as those of the earlier 2 EPB units and seated 84 and shared the diagram number 400. These coaches were 63' 11½" long and weighed 40 tons, although those fitted with a Commonwealth bogie at the non-driving end weighed 41 tons as well as two EE 507 motors to express gear ratio. The three-aside seats were offside when the motor coach was leading.

 

Driving Trailer Composite (DTC)

The driving trailer composite was also 63' 11½" long and weighed 30 tons (31 tons on Commonwealth fitted vehicles). The internal layout consisted of a driving cab entered from an entrance vestibule behind, three first class compartments, the outermost seating 7, the other two 6 and joined by a side corridor on the nearside (when DTC leading). This corridor led to a lavatory which was situated towards the centre of the coach and side by side with another for the use of second class passengers, though there was no through access from the first class section to the second class saloon, which was of five bays with seats for 50. The three aside seats were nearside when the DTC was leading so the gangways were offset to the same side in both vehicles of the unit. The diagram number issued was 441.

2 HAP units

Overall unit length was 132' 8½", the two coaches being coupled by the three link chain and centre buffer arrangement as in the EPB units. Overall unit weight was 70 tons or 72 tons if equipped with Commonwealth bogies. Seating capacity was 19 first and 134 second. These units were given electrical codes for each vehicle from new. Units 6172 & 6173 were outshopped with fluorescent lighting, these two being the last units to be built at Eastleigh works and outshopped during May 1963. Under the initial BR TOPS classification system in 1972, the 2 HAP units became Class 412 (1951 units) and Class 424 (1957 units), but these were revised in 1975 to Class 414/2 (1951 units) and 414/3 (1957 units).

 

Into Service

When delivered, the ‘1951’ units were based at Gillingham and Streatham Hill working on the former 2 HAL diagrams. With the completion of the Kent Coast electrification scheme the ‘phase 1’ & ‘phase 2’ units were based at the newly opened Ramsgate depot, which also progressively gained responsibility of some of the ‘1951’ units. The final batches were maintained at Wimbledon Park when working on the South Western division or at Streatham Hill or Lovers Walk (Brighton) when allocated to the Central division.

Units 6088 /6097 /6103 /6110 were loaned to the SWD for a short while in June 1961 to cover Ascot Races requirements and 10 new units went to the SWD for the Summer 1963 timetable and other new units 6151 /6154 /6170‑6173 went to Streatham Hill for use on night trains to Gatwick Airport, soon being joined by 6153/6168 when some daytime trains were also added to the diagrams.

Programmed running gear overhauls were dealt with at Chart Leacon (Ashford) and bodywork overhauls at Eastleigh works. Accident damage was dealt with at either Eastleigh and from about 1970 at Slade Green, whilst other unscheduled repairs were carried out at Selhurst, where some units were also repainted from time to time. When the Bournemouth line was electrified there were some alterations to 2 HAP workings on the South Western division and these units took over the Lymington branch line from 2nd June 1967.

Units worked in all combinations, from solo on branch line duties such as the Maidstone West to Paddock Wood line, up to six units together (12 HAP) on some heavily loaded rush-hour trains; the seating capacity of this formation being 114 first and 804 second. They also worked some trains in combination with 4 CEP units, and a lesser number with 4 EPB units; some trains to Gillingham/Maidstone being rostered for 6 HAP + 4 EPB and splitting at Strood. However, being fitted with express gear ratio motor bogies, they were not suitable substitutes for a 2 EPB unit in a 10-car formation suburban train.

 

Downgrading to SAP and return to HAP units

During April /May 1974 all the ‘1951’ units were downgraded to all second class and reclassified as 2 SAP Class 418/1 and renumbered 5901 ‑ 5940 (units 6022 & 6023 were not included as they were being used at this time for experiments with tightlock couplings and were not in public traffic). Two 1957 units were also done as 5941/2 and Class 418/2. In this form, the DTC (now DTS) had the armrests sewn-up in the first class compartments which now seated eight (two compartments) and 10 (the outermost compartment) giving a total of 76 seats in this vehicle and a unit total of 160. A revised diagram number (481) was issued.

These units were transferred to suburban duties on the SWD displacing 4 SUB units for withdrawal, but the units retained their express gear ratios. Further 1957 type units were similarly treated in April/May 1977 and renumbered 5943 ‑ 5951, though 6053 ran as 5951 for only a short period. However, all were reconverted to 2 HAP in April/May 1980 with the former seating arrangements restored. 2 HAP units 6045 ‑ 6054 also moved to the SWD in May 1974 for use as main line strengthening units and for the Lymington branch. Their place on the SED was taken by newly delivered 4 VEP units.

Into TOPS

Units received the TOPS class number 414, later 414/2 for the ‘1951 type’ units and 414/3 for ‘1957 type’ units.

 

AWS

From about 1980, units in the 6001 ‑ 6105 batches began to be fitted with simplified AWS equipment, those working on the SWD having it brought into use on fitment, those working on CD and SED had the equipment activated about August 1981.

 

CAP units (paired HAP units)

In May 1982, twenty six ‘1951 type’ units and twenty two ‘1957 Phase 1’ units were formed into 4 CAP units, pairs of 2 HAP units permanently coupled with the motor coaches in the centre to keep the brakevans together; these units were used on the Coastway services based on Brighton. They were classified as class 413/2 (1951) and 413/3 (1957) and numbered 3201 ‑ 3213 & 3301 ‑ 3311.

These units later moved to the South Eastern once again, being allocated at various times to either Gillingham or Ramsgate depots. Units 6170 and 6173 were the last two 2 HAP units to work from Ramsgate, their final day in traffic was 1st October 1984.

 

Asbestos Removal

All 2 HAP units were built containing blue asbestos insulation; the 1957 units being particularly badly contaminated. Due to the high cost of removal a start was made on withdrawal of units, mostly from the later batches from January 1982. However, quite a number of the older units were stripped of asbestos between 1981 and 1983 during C1A overhauls at Eastleigh; these overhauls taking between two and three months to complete. This stripping including all those units used in the 4 CAP units and these units lasted in service until the early 1990's.

 

Gatwick Express Guard’s Luggage Vans (GLVs)

Ten MBS vehicles from withdrawn units were extensively rebuilt as GLVs for the Victoria to Gatwick service from May 1984.

2 HAP renumbering

During 1987, the remaining 2 HAP units (all now operating on the SWD were renumbered) the only 1951 unit becoming 4201, and the 1957 units becoming 4301 ‑ 4322.

Some of these units were transferred to the SED in September 1991 and some were formed into further 4 CAP units numbered 3321 ‑ 3325 and 3333 (a 1951/1957 hybrid unit), these later 4 CAP units differing from the earlier ones by having their motor coaches on the outer ends.

When withdrawals commenced, many units spent some time in store and those with Commonwealth bogies were sent for scrapping via Swindon where these bogies were recovered for use in the 4 CEP refurbishment programme.

Many withdrawn units were taken Eastleigh for body stripping and their seats, heaters etc. were removed for further use in facelifted BR type 2 EPB and 4 EPB units which were having compartment accommodation removed at this time.

Unit formations were as follows, with the 2 SAP number and 4 CAP number shown where applicable.

2 HAP 6116 & others at Gillingham,Kent copyright BloodandCustard w.jpg

2 HAP number 6116 (‘1961 build’ Phase 2)
amongst 4 VEP units at Gillingham

© BloodandCustard

 

2 HAP Liveries

Units were delivered new in all-over green livery and started receiving small yellow warning panels on cab ends from about 1964-on. Applied to many Southern Region 2 & 3-car units with yellow warning panels /ends the inverted black triangle provided an early indication to station staff that there was no brake van at the other end of the unit.

All units were steadily repainted into overall blue livery with full yellow ends from 1967 onwards, the majority going straight from green with yellow panels to blue with yellow ends, though the following gained full yellow ends whilst still in green livery: 6004 /6007 /6009, 6129 /6139 /6146 /6147 /6153 /6160 /6168 /6172.

Unit 6160 was the last unit to run in green in this condition being repainted blue about March 1971, whilst 6165 had been the last green with yellow panels in February 1971.

A number of ‘1951 type’ units were painted blue with blue ends and small yellow panels, 6020 being the first in July 1966, these being: 6005 /6006 /6010 /6012 /6018 /6020 /6021 /6027 /6030 /6036 /6037 /6038 /6041, all these later gaining a further repaint with full yellow ends; 6030 being the last to run in this condition until about May 1971.

From late 1980 units started to gain blue /grey livery, the first being 6120 in June; nearly all eventually being so painted apart from a few early withdrawals still in all-blue. With the exception of 6013 (4201), all units surviving to be renumbered into the 43xx series received Network South East livery.
