South West Trains LogoSouth West Trains was formed on privatisation of British Rail and today runs all services out of London Waterloo. The majority of it’s operating territory is electrified by 3rd rail DC; however some services are operated by Diesel traction as they head west onto the un-electrified lines past Basingstok ontowards Salisbury.

The company also operates the “island line” service on the Isle of Wight.

Since privatisation, SWT had embarked on an exercise to update all of their rolling stock to replace the slam-door stock that had previously been in use by British Rail/NSE. The final slam-door stock was finally phased out in May 2010 when the “community line” that was the link from Lymington to Brockenhurst was switched over to a mix of Class 158 and Class 450 stock following the timetable changes.
