SR 4RES 'Nelson' EMU coach set
TRTK - Trailer Restaurant Kitchen Third
In 1937 the SR introduced their 12car fully corridor emu trains on the newly electrified Portsmouth line. The name 'Nelson' resulted from the non drivers front window being replaced by destination screen, as corridor door was in centre.
Sets of 4COR and 4RES made up the Portmouth trains.
In 1938 similar trains were introduced on the Mid Sussex line, with buffet car relacing restaurant, in set 4BUF.
In 1962 3 of the 4RES sets had their restauant car fully refurbished in BR Mk 1 coach style as a griddle car.
These electric trains were finally withdrawn from service in 1972.
