The Southern Region's investment in its Kent lines in the late 1950s meant that resources were not available to extend electrification to the Sevenoaks to St Leonards 'Hastings' line, and diesel-electric multiple units were introduced instead. Similar in some respects to SR's electric rolling stock, they integrated well into the system and proved reliable and long-lasting. The 100 colour photographs in this book show the units in action from 1957 until the early 21st century.
