British Rail Class 418 (or 2Sap) was a class of electrical multiple unit commissioned by British Railways Southern Region in England. The units were formed in the 1970s by simply declassifying the first class accommodation in selected 2Hap units. They were employed on inner suburban routes such as the Hounslow Loop Line.
