Units 1883-1890 proved to be the last conversions of old steam stock for main line electric use and almost the last for suburban work, except for three car suburban units 1579-1584 in September-December 1937.
Even allowing for the disruption caused by the war years, the interval between their major body overhauls was nearer the ten years of suburban stock than the seven of main line and the biennial varnishing of the coastal units was done alongside suburban units at Selhurst paint shop.
The survivors of 1325 and 1355 had been transferred from main line to suburban stock, so the loss in accounting terms was 1507 and 1855 suburban, and 1828, 2014, 2102, 2119 and 2131 main line.

This Strategy has been designed to improve the journey experience for the majority of the users of this busy and important route by delivering improved punctuality and more seats at peak times.
Punctuality and journey times will be improved by simplifying train movements, and crowding will be eased through the introduction of longer trains and additional stops at the busiest stations.
One of the proposed improvements has already been introduced: a direct Brighton to Ashford service now links coastal towns with the Brighton Main Line and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

 Caterham Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Caterham branch was opened as the Caterham Railway on 5 August 1856, from a junction with the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LBandSCR), although the opening had been delayed because of a quarrel between the LBandSCR and the South Eastern Railway (SER), in whose territory the line was deemed to be.
The line is double-track and electrified at 750 V DC using third rail.
Immediately south of the junction station at Purley the Tattenham Corner Line leaves, and the railway follows the valley opposite Riddlesdown and the Oxted Line, which it parallels almost to Caterham.

We are pleased that the DfT has corrected an analytical error of the original document, that heavy crowding on the coastal trains is between East Croydon and London, not at Gatwick Airport - an error that is fundamental in deciding the future of this line.
We are also pleased that the long-standing issue of poor off-peak services on the Redhill corridor has, at the least, been recognised.

The document is concerned about the effect that the Watford Junction to Brighton trains have on performance and highlights the problem of crossing movements (one an hour in each direction) from slow (local) to fast (through) lines and v.v.
Also not discussed is the effect of these proposals on connections at Three Bridges between Brighton line trains serving stations, south of Three Bridges, and trains serving Crawley/Horsham stations, etc. Incidentally, I am also curious to know what exactly is meant by the term 'Health and education trips' (at Haywards Heath and East Grinstead).
Performance problems on one part of thenetwork will have a reduced effect on the effect on the main line and on other parts of the network.' This is a fair comment, especially when the sometimes poor timekeeping of the up trains from Southampton is borne in mind.

He said one of the proposed improvements had already been introduced - a direct Brighton to Ashford service linking coastal towns with the Brighton main line and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
