To celebrate the release of the Class 73, we are going to take a step back to a time when the electro-diesels ruled supreme on Gatwick Express services out of London Victoria and on the Brighton Main Line. There was no such thing as a third rail Electrostar, the Class 442 Wessex was only to be seen in the South West, and many multiple units still clung onto their old Network SouthEast stripes. Welcome to the late 1990s.
