Don't forget the HAP's and DEMU's. These were a very important part of outer London slam door services on the Southern Region.

This website's quite handy:

You need my series of books on British Multiple Units! Most of the information you require is there with the exception of allocations and liveries. Volume 1 covers DMUs and DEMUs; Volume 2 EPBs, Haps, Saps and Caps; Volume 3 Classes 302-395; Volume 4 Classes 410-490/508.

Good luck with allocations and liveries. The information is available but was beyond the scope of my books.

I would suggest looking at the Southern Electric Groups website. As noted above there are some books around on the subject and I am sure all the info you want should be available in some form.

Yes, they also have a good page detailing the whereabouts of remaining slammers.
