The Class 387 is in service with Great Northern, Great Western Railway, Gatwick Express and c2c. They were also in service with Thameslink until being transferred to Great Northern after being replaced by Class 700s.
Extermally Class 387s look the same as the likes of the Class 377. Class 387/1s are in service with Great Northern and GWR. 387/2s with Gatwick Express and 387/3s with c2c. The c2c trains are due to be replaced by new build EMUs in 2019 and will likely go and join one of the other operators to strengthen their fleet.
