The EPB Preservation Group EMUs operated at the East Kent Railway for 20 years. We are now moving our stock to new homes due to a policy change by the trustees of the East Kent Railway. We regret they have made this decision, which has also affected our friends at the Southern Electric Group.
   There will be no more emudays until further notice, sorry.
