The port cities were the focus of the railways in Hampshire when the three main lines were built, from Southampton to London and to the Midlands and from Portsmouth to South Wales. This concise illustrated history recalls the era of steam in the county when the Eastleigh works were building locomotives and numerous branch lines and light railways supplemented the principal routes, bringing passengers and freight to and from the coast.
