Three Faces of DC Electrostars
Comparing and contrasting, almost but not quite from the same angle, the three faces of Bombardier Electrostar series stock fitted with conductor rail pickup.
(right) Non corridor but with front emergency exit on the new high density class 378 for London Overground, seen whilst in Derby Works during September 2008.
(below left) Non corridor with three part windscreen seen on 's high density class 376 - unit 018 is seen approaching London Bridge on 17th August 2005.
(below right) Corridor front as seen on class 375 and class 377 - 377324 is approaching Clapham Junction on 1st August 2007 with a Brighton Express working.
|For completeness, Bombardier Electrostar series stock can also be seen with two further designs of cab fronts, both types of units having overhead-only pickup. c2c's class 357 has a non corridor cab front similar to Bombardier Turbostar (diesel unit) series stock and export units for South Africa's Gautrain have an entirely new and stylish - arguably the best front end design yet - non corridor front.
