old duplicated versino is here and in page history.
Initially NSE used a "jaffa cake" livery but this was later revised to blue with white and red stripe.
This article could desperately do with a map or some indication of the area and major arteries served by NSE.
Franchise v company Names
I have changed some of the names in first column of the franhcises table. this column should contain the original franchise names, which should not be confused with the trading names used by the first franchise operators. For example, the franchise now branded Southern is (or was originally) called Network South Central. Connex South Central was Connex's rebranding. Flagboy 22:29, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
Jaffa Cake livery
I believe the Jaffa Cake livery referred to at the top of the discussion page was used by the London & South East (LSE) sector of British Rail which existed from 1981 (I think). As I recall the Jaffa Cake livery was applied to Kent Coast and Clacton/Walton on the Naze EMUs as they were refurbished. As such Network SouthEast may have inherited stock in Jaffa Cake livery but I don't believe they actually applied the livery to any of their stock - as NSE was effectively the brand launched in 1986. 220.127.116.11 11:27, 25 May 2007 (UTC)James
