Ex South Tyneside EPB 5793 - Electric Railway Museum, Baginton, Coventry.
The last surviving EPB unit built in 1954 for the South Tyneside electrified lines has been saved for posterity at the Electric Railway Museum at Baginton close to Coventry Airport seen on September 13th 2015. When the Tyneside system was de-electrified in 1963, the 15 units were transferred to the Southern Region to join the similar EPB fleet already in service. The Tyneside units had a larger brake van area and were fitted with a smaller headcode window in the cab fronts.
