Tim Wood initially worked as a Railman at Lewes station during the early years of the Network SouthEast era. He later became a train driver at Brighton depot, during which time he worked for Network SouthCentral, Connex South Central and Southern trains. This book gives a detailed firsthand account of what it was like to drive, and work with, slam door electric multiple units on the Southern Region. Included are sections that describe working with diesels as a 'second man', the driver training process, technical details of how slam door units worked and experience of modern sliding door rolling stock which eventually replaced the older units.
