Converted in 2002, this train was used by Hitachi to test the traction packages for the forthcoming Class 395 "Javelin" EMUs on the UK network. The unit was converted from Class 310 vehicles and ran as a 4-car set with two pantograph cars in the centre.

After testing on the Eastern Region and CTRL, a former 4-VEP motor coach was substituted for one of the pantograph cars and testing on the South Eastern commenced from Ramsgate depot.
