The new Integrated Kent Franchise was awarded to the London and South East Railway trading as Southeastern Railway. The first change of image was new branding in a split black or white (depending upon background colour) "south" violet "eastern" lowercase script logo. Note also sub-classes 465/0 and 465/1 received a new traction package from Hitachi which resulted in the equipment case covers on the motor cars being removed for improved ventilation.
465248 at London Bridge on 1st February 2011 Which in a sense introduced yet another variation, with equipment covers (as left) or without (as above)!

Even as late as mid 2011 some units still had unpainted window frames. These two pictures (left and below) of 465042 at Charing Cross on 30th May 2011 show the unpainted aluminum window frames clearly. 465042 is about to depart with the 13:20 to Dartford.

As of the end of May 2011 units remaining in the condition are believed to be: 465029, 465042, 465171, 465173 and part of 465179 (ex hybrid).

465013 departed for Wolverton with unpainted window frames and it has yet to be observed to establish whether they were painted during the livery change.
