Description

This book provides a complete listing of the construction dates, withdrawal dates and renumberings of the constituent locomotives of the Southern Railway. This is the very first time this plethora of information is available in one handy volume, and it will prove highly useful to every keen Southern enthusiast. The South Eastern & Chatham Railway was formed out of an amalgamation of the London, Chatham & Dover and South Eastern Companies, although the other two Southern Railway constituents retained their individual identities from inception until 1923. Within this treasure trove of information, Southern enthusiasts will for the first time have at their disposal a complete list of locomotives, along with their designer, builder, wheel arrangement, name details and origins, plus all renumberings through SR and BR days and eventual disposal dates. The author has created an essential guide for both the enthusiast and modeller, especially if the latter wishes to ensure accuracy in running particular locomotives together at a specific period in time. Complimented by a number of quality images, many of which have never been published before, this volume will prove invaluable to all with an interest in the history of the Southern.
