The 1923 revision of the railways in Britain saw the end of dozens of companies around the country as many famous names were absorbed into the 'Big Four'. The Britain's Pre-Grouping Railways series surveys some of the best known operators of the era, focusing on the locomotives in operation and the engineers responsible for acquiring, designing and building them.
Beginning with the engines acquired for the London and Brighton Railway, dating back to 1839, this volume reviews the locomotives of the LBSCR up to the beginning of the 20th century. Originally published in 1903. This revised edition contains over 140 line drawings of the more than 1,000 steam locomotives built or purchased by the company during the period.
