The 308s were also constructed in the early sixties for the Southend line but were used over large areas emanating from Liverpool Street Station. They, like the 305ís were reallocated northwards but went to the West Yorkshire area. Withdrawn in the early noughties. The 305s were built in the early sixties for the Liverpool Street surburban services. There were three distinctive sub sets, the 308/1, the 308/2 and the 308/3.

The original 308/1 sets were formed of four cars and were to the standard commuter layout.

The 308/2 sets were also formed of four cars and had the MBS replaced by a MLV with extra luggage capacity for the Tilbury route. As traffic on this route fell four of the MLVs were converted to MBS with a very un-standard window layout.

The 308/3 sets were formed of three cars and were identifiable by having large windows between the passenger entrance doors, almost identical to the 305/1.

All three types of set were refurbished in the eighties and the four car sets were seen with only three cars.

In later years they were moved to the West Yorkshire area. Withdrawn in the early noughties.
