I take it these are original 378/0s (dual voltage) with a fourth car?

I'm pretty sure unit 378 225 was the first dual voltage unit delivered in
four car layout as new, the original 378/0 order was for 24 units...

This is the first of the extra 4 car dual voltage units ordered after
the initial 24 x 3 car dual voltage (001-024) and 20 x 4 car DC only
units (135-154). These extra units (225-234 and 255-257) have been
ordered in bits and pieces as the various extensions to the ELL have
been authorised (some for the Highbury & Islington bit, some for the
Clapham Junction bit and some for service strengthening on the North
London Line).

The 3 car dual voltage units will be extended to 4 car at some point
(once the infrastructure works have finished) and be renumbered
201-224.

Brilliant comment - although (Bombardier, not IKEA) didn't they supply
a bunch if trains to South Africa in 'flat-pack' boxes for local
assembly?
