    The LSWR chose the relatively simple, low-voltage DC electric system for its suburban lines in 1912 and the adoption of this as a standard for the Southern Railway after 1926 was a major factor in the extensive roll-out of electrification. The first volume of this comprehensive history examines the electrification schemes of the Southern Railway and its pre-Grouping predecessors between 1909 and 1939, and the suburban rolling stock placed in service up to 1951.
