Like '201' 207202 was formed for the short lived Marshlink services. For this unit the Motor and Driving Trailer from unit 1305 was used along with trailer 70549 from CEP Unit 70549.
leaving Hastings in 2002 on the Marshlink service to Ashford is 207202.
The ex EMU Trailer can distinctively be seen as the 207's were a bit narrower than conventional stock.
207202 is now preserved on the East Lancs Railway.When it first arrived it was given a quick coat of green and immediately pressed into service.
We recently heard it is currently going through the paintshops but asbestos has been found which has to be removed, so hopefully in the near future there will be another thumper running.
What must be the biggest nameplate ever carried on a train. As 201 was named at Ashford there had to be another naming ceremony at the other end of the at Brighton, so 202 was named after the Royal Pavillion in 95.
