Ordered alongside the 4-CEP (later Class 411) Electric Multiple Units, the British Rail 4-BEPs (later Class 410) were four-car EMUs built at BR’s Eastleigh Works between 1957 and 1961 to operate on the newly electrified main lines in Kent. Based on the BR Mk1 bodyshell, the BEPs differed from the CEPs by having a Buffet Car in place of one of the standard trailer cars. When BR came to refurbish the units, some remained as BEPs but others were reformed int CEPs due to the reduced requirements for catering facilities – the remaining BEPs became Class 412/3s following refurbishment.

Following the privatisation of British Rail in 1995, the units were used on Connex South Central, Connex South Eastern and South West Trains franchises before being replace by a new generation of multiple unit as the industry sought to eliminate ‘slam-door’ rolling stock for reasons of safety and modernisation.
