Network SouthEast (NSE) was a state of the art passenger sector of British Rail which was formed in 1986. Previously this sector of British Rail was called London & SouthEastern. Standards of train punctuality, cleanliness and passenger service improved dramatically during the operation, as well as new trains, refurbishment of stations and the building of new station buildings. The livery that the majority of loco's and trains received was red, white, blue and grey - also known as toothpaste.

Following privatisation, the operation of the service was split into franchises and passed to LTS Rail, Chiltern Railways, Great Eastern Railway, Thames Trains, Island Line, North London Railways, South Eastern, Network SouthCentral, Thameslink, WAGN, and South West Trains. Some of these have since changed to new companies where they've introduced new liveries.
