Class 377 "Electrostar"

As mentioned in the section on the class 375 the South Central portion of the third Connex batch has been adopted by Govia. These units are to the original Connex specification. South Central subsequently placed further orders. This is thought to be a pragmatic act since other rolling stock manufacturers have full order books, plus the major de-bugging has already been done by Connex and c2c. The Brighton lines also currently suffer from inadequate power infrastructure for the full potential of these units to be exploited and some units have been delivered and put into secure storage. South Central took the opportunity to re-specify slightly their Electrostars, the most significant technical changes being the use of Dellner couplers, resulting in a re-designation to class 377 and less generous seating.>
