The Class 310 4-car units were introduced in 1965 on the newly-electrified line from London Euston to Birmingham and Liverpool. Unlike contemporary Southern units, the 310s were based around the Mark 2 bodyshell and were fitted with B4 bogies making them popular with travellers.
The 310s operated services until the late 1980s. Following introduction of newer Class 317 and 321 units, some of these units migrated to Great Eastern and LT+S services, whilst others were retained around Birmingham as 3-car sets.
The Electra kit consists of our usual high-quality vinyl overlays to convert four Graham Farish Mark 2 coaches. These have been re-drawn to make use of the new high-quality clear vinyl and now feature no-smoking/ first class signs, headcode panels and and front windscreens.
A 6-page construction guide is included with plans for the unit underframes and roof vent positioning.
