One of the few survivors from the Network South East era on Britain’s railways... Sandy Station sign still displaying the bold, blue and red Network Southeast logo flashes in 2018! 23/05/2018 . . Network SouthEast (NSE) was one of the three passenger sectors of British Rail formed in 1982. NSE principally operated commuter trains in the London area and inter-urban services in densely populated South East England, although the network reached as far west as Exeter. Before 1986, the sector was known as London & South Eastern. . . On 10 June 1986, L&SE was relaunched as Network SouthEast, along with a new red, white and blue livery.The relaunch was intended to be more than a superficial rebranding and was underpinned by considerable investment in the presentation of stations and trains, as well as efforts to improve service standards.This approach was largely brought about by a new director, Chris Green, who had presided over similar transformation and rebranding of ScotRail. . .
