Network 150 Day - (06) Class 487 Network SouthEast Waterloo & City line electric unit no. 57
Photographed in October 1988 at the Ian Allan Network 150 Day at Waterloo Station. These units were manufactured by English Electric for the underground Waterloo & City Line in London. They came into service in 1940 and lasted until 1993. When photographed in 1988, these units were still in service and this one is in British Rail's Network SouthEast livery. It has the number 57 on the side, which presumably is its fleet number. At that time the line was still electrified on the third rail system. A few years later the line became part of the London Underground, and was converted to the fourth rail system.
