WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE SOUTHERN ELECTRIC TRACTION GROUP.

We are the operators of the only preserved and mainline-registered electric multiple unit in the UK; the Bluebell Railway’s 4VEP No. 3417 ‘Gordon Pettitt’.

The SETG has been formed to work on behalf of the Bluebell Railway to maintain, operate and fundraise for No. 3417.

We intend to keep this unique item of rolling stock in traffic for enthusiasts and the traveling public to enjoy for years to come.
